About the lecture
Cytoskeletal proteins drive cellular motion for example during cell division or morphogenesis. Ensembles of cytoskeletal proteins self-assemble to drive these processes. We are interested in the roles of the individual cooperating proteins and the principles that underpin their collective action. We use single molecule imaging and manipulation techniques to quantitatively describe these biological systems. I will discuss two recent projects from the lab, covering the role of cross-linking proteins in actin contractility and the role of the neurodegeneration-related protein tau in regulating access to microtubules.
Registration for lunch with the speaker /for Ph.D. students/
