The OSU CCC Center for Cancer Engineering hosts a virtual launch meeting. Guest keynote speakers are Nicole F. Steinmetz, PhD, from the University of California, San Deigo and John Condeelis, PhD, from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
Dr. Yoder is hosting Harvey Lodish, Ph.D. for today’s MLS seminar series. Dr. Lodish is a Professor in both Biology and Bioengineering departments at MIT as well as a founding member of the Whitehead Institute. His seminar at 4:00 is titled “Stem cells, transit amplifying cells, and the regulation of red blood cell production: Development of new therapies for erythropoietin-resistant anemias”.
This year’s recipient of the OSU Center for Retrovirus Research Distinguished Career Award is Eric Freed, Ph.D., Director of the HIV Dynamics and Replication Program at the National Cancer Institute. His seminar title is “HIV Replication: Where have we come from and where are we going?”.
Unfortunately the annual meeting of the American Society for Virology was cancelled. Instead, virtual workshops will be conducted. Dr. Yoder is presenting at the Retrovirus-Host Interaction workshop. The title of her presentation is “Prototype foamy virus and mouse mammary tumor virus intasomes display unique target DNA search dynamics”.
We’re preempting our regularly scheduled virtual journal club on May 19 to have a science writing and editing workshop. We’ll discuss a draft grant proposal. See you in Zoom!
On April 7, 2020 our journal club resumes. We will now have a virtual format. See you in Zoom!
The Ohio Virology Association is run by graduate students interested in virology. They organize a monthly seminar featuring external and OSU faculty speakers. Their February meeting hosts Dr. Yoder with the seminar “Retroviral Integration: the good, the bad, and the targeted”.
Dr. Baltierra Jasso is presenting her work at the annual Biophysical Society Meeting in San Diego, California. Her poster title is “Unraveling oncogenic retroviral integration dynamics using single molecule platforms”.
