Concussion discussion

With a national clamor for more information on head impacts in sports, the University of Delaware is positioned directly in the middle of the concussion discussion.

Peering into cell structures

A University of Delaware research team led by Tatyana Polenova and colleagues from the Beckman Research Institute of City of Hope have revealed for the first time, atom by atom, the structure of a protein bound to a microtubule.

In addition to invited lectures by renowned experts in membrane biophysics and biology, the symposium will include poster presentations by students and postdocs. For the detailed program or information regarding travel and accommodations, visit the symposium website. 

The organizers – Sharon Rozovsky, assistant professor of chemistry and biochemistry, and Ed Lyman, assistant professor of physics and astronomy – said they expect about 100 participants for the day of lectures and discussions. This annual conference is supported by National Institutes of Health-COBRE program on membrane protein production and characterization led by Abraham Lenhoff, UD’s Allan P. Colburn Professor of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering.

Registration is free but those who plan to attend are asked to fill out a registration form so organizers can plan accordingly.
