Biology seminar: Cell Polarity and Morphogenesis in C. elegans

12:20 pm

Attend a biology seminar with Bob Goldstein, associate professor at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. His research group combines classical cell manipulations with a variety of modern methods in C. elegans to explore basic mechanism in cell and developmental biology. The group is also developing water bears as a new animal model for studying the evolution of such mechanisms. Goldstein serves on the editorial boards of Development, Development Dynamics, Molecular Biology of the Cell and BMC Developmental Biology and received a Pew Scholars Award in 2000, A March of Dimes Basil O’Connor Scholars Award in 2000, and a Philip and Ruth Hettleman Prize for Artistic and Scholarly Achievement in 2005. He was named a Visiting Fellow and Life Member of Clare Hall, Cambridge University and a Guggenheim Fellow in 2007.
