There is no talk on this day.
Rachel Zemans, M.D.
October 6, 2022
Dr. Zemans’ lab is interested in understanding the mechanisms by which the lung epithelium is injured and regenerates after injury.
Yihong Ye, Ph.D.
November 3, 2022
The ultimate goal of Dr. Ye’s research is to understand how cells use various protein quality control (PQC) strategies to maintain protein homeostasis, and how defects in these processes lead to aging-associated neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease.
Hidde Ploegh, Ph.D.
December 1, 2022
Dr. Ploegh is an immunologist at Boston Children’s Hospital, known for his contributions in understanding antigen processing and evasion of the immune system by viruses.
January 5, 2023
Wenjing Wang, Ph.D.
February 2, 2023
Dr. Wang’s lab uses protein engineering to develop tools and technologies to help scientists investigate the detailed ways in which neurons and neuropathways regulate activities such as metabolism, drug addicition and neurodegeneration.
March 2, 2023
Lars Plate, Ph.D.
April 6, 2023
Dr. Plate’s lab is working to define the dynamics and the coordination of protein interaction networks in diverse cellular processes.
Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Ph.D.
May 4, 2023
Dr. Lippincott-Schwartz is a Senior Group Leader at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute’s Janelia Research Campus and a founding member of the Neuronal Cell Biology Program at Janelia.
Hank Paulson, M.D., Ph.D.
June 1, 2023
Dr. Paulson’s lab explores the reasons why the aging brain degenerates in neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s Disease, Frontotemporal Dementia and polyglutamine expansion disorders such as Huntington disease and Spinocerebellar Ataxia type 3 (SCA3).
