|Description:||The Lorene Morrow Kelley Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, Ph.D., delivering the talk "Breakthroughs in Imaging Using Photoactivatable Fluorescent Protein Technology." Lippincott-Schwartz is a distinguished National Institutes of Health (NIH) investigator in the Cell Biology and Metabolism Program at the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. She uses live cell imaging to study the behavior and interactions of cellular molecules, employing a number of different live cell imaging approaches, including FRAP, FCS and photoactivation.
Most recently, she has been using photoactivation localization microscopy, aka PALM. Some of the areas she investigates include protein transport and the cytoskeleton, organelle assembly and disassembly, and the generation of cell polarity.
Among her professional accomplishments, Lippincott-Schwartz was elected to the National Academy of Sciences in 2008. More information on her work can be found here.
The Lorene Morrow Kelley Lectureship was established with gifts by Lorene Kelley Morrow to honor her sister, Marie Betzner Morrow, who at the time of her death in 1971 was an associate professor of Microbiology at The University of Texas at Austin.
Note: This seminar will also be available as a live Webcast here.
