ISMB Seminar Series

ISMB seminars provide opportunities to hear world class researchers giving seminars at the ISMB. Since October 2010 ISMB seminars have taken place weekly throughout term time. These exciting termly seminar series are organised around specific themes and are co-ordinated jointly by the Research Department of Structural Molecular Biology at UCL and the Department of Biological Sciences, Birkbeck and all ISMB staff and students are encouraged to attend.

Summer 2016 ISMB Seminar Series:

 

Organising the Cell
Co-ordinated by Drs Anthony Roberts and Giulia Zanetti

 

In a universe of increasing entropy, living cells are remarkably organised. The complex internal organisation of the cell underpins almost every aspect its physiology: its ability to move, divide, integrate signals and perform sophisticated chemistry. This seminar series focusses on advances in the mechanisms and machines that eukaryotic cells use to attain internal order, from fusing and forming membranes, to phase-separation of liquid compartments, to the active movement of motor proteins and filaments.
