Plenary speech by HHMI professor highlights efforts of scientist-educators
Date:2/21/2011

ary 19, 2011: 2:00 p.m., Room 102B
  • Seth Cooper, a computer science graduate student working with HHMI investigator David Baker at the University of Washington, will talk about the development of the innovative computer game Foldit. The game invites members of the public to help researchers crack "the protein-folding problem," one of molecular biology's toughest challenges. The work was described in the journal Nature in August 2010. Sunday, February 20, 2011: 2:00 p.m., Room 145B
  • Karl Deisseroth, an HHMI early career scientist at Stanford, will be talking about his research in the burgeoning field of optogenetics. Deisseroth is one of the field's pioneers and he'll discuss a new technique that allows scientists to use light to turn individual neurons on or off. He and his colleagues have used the technique to study depression, Parkinson's disease, and schizophrenia. Sunday, February 20, 2011: 3:00 p.m., Room 146A
  • Robert Darnell, an HHMI investigator at The Rockefeller University in New York, will talk about the relationship between the regulation of RNA, stress and human disease. His lab has developed new methods to generate genome-wide maps of the places where RNA and regulatory proteins interact, and he will illustrate the wide range of insights these methods are yielding, from understanding of immunologic stress to Lou Gehrig's disease. Monday, February 21, 2011: 9:45 a.m., Room 147A
