    The Ruth K. Broad Foundation Seminar Series on Neurobiology and Disease

    Location: Bryan Research 103The lab's goal is to understand the interplay of membrane-bound organelles, cytoskeletal structure, and metabolism as it relates to the organization and function of neurons, and the cells they interact with. On a small scale, we are interested in mapping out the spatial organization, stoichiometry, and dynamics of proteins as they interact with each other and with different parts of the cell. On a larger scale, we are trying to decipher how complex cellular behaviors arise, including cell crawling, polarization, cell-cell contact, cytokinesis, cell fate determination, viral budding, and intercellular transfer. To study these problems, we rely heavily on microscopy - including super-resolution imaging techniques and cutting edge fluorescence-based technologies - as well as biochemistry, in vitro reconstitution, and mathematical modeling.

    Application Deadline: April 1, 2019Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Meetings & Courses ProgramThis intensive laboratory and lecture course will focus on cutting-edge proteomic approaches and technologies.Students will gain practical experience in sample preparation with in-solution digestion, then students will be trained using high-sensitivity nano LC-ESI-MS and tandem mass spectrometry. Different search engines and bioinformatic approaches will be introduced for data evaluation. For the shotgun proteomic analysis sections, students will use label-free and covalent isotopic-labeling quantitative approaches to profile changes. The aim of the course is to provide each student with the fundamental knowledge and hands-on experience necessary for performing and analyzing proteomic experiments. The overall goal is to train students to identify new opportunities and applications for proteomic approaches in their biological research.Part time instructors for this course include:Erik Soderblom, Duke Center for Genomic and Computational BiologyWill Thompson, Duke Center for Genomic and Computational BiologyCost (including board and lodging): $3,960 More Info
