CANCER CENTER SEMINAR SERIES
If You Only Have Time to Attend One Talk on Autophagy Today–This is the One!
Friday, November 12, 2010
Please join us Friday, November 12 at the next Cancer Center Seminar Series featuring guest speaker Daniel Klionsky, PhD. Dr. Klionsky, Alexander G. Ruthven Professor of Life Sciences University of Michigan, will present If You Only Have Time to Attend One Talk on Autophagy Today–This is the One!
Dr. Klionsky's research focuses on protein targeting, organelle biogenesis and autophagy in baker's yeast. His lab made the pioneering discovery of the cytoplasm to vacuole targeting pathway, a specific type of autophagy, and the only example of a biosynthetic function for this normally degradative process. His lab's work has led to a molecular understanding of cargo recognition and packaging, and membrane recycling during autophagy. In 2004, Dr. Klionsky edited the first textbook on "Autophagy." He helped launch the Gordon Research Conference on "Autophagy in Stress, Development and Disease," and served as Chair in 2005. Dr. Klionsky is the founding Editor-in-Chief of the journal Autophagy. In recognition of his research and teaching, Dr. Klionsky was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2009.
