ASRC-CCNY Seminar Series in Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biodesign: Andrei A. Korostelev, University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School

In this weekly seminar series, Professor Andrei A. Korostelev, RNA Therapeutics Institute, University of Massachusetts Chan Medical School, Worcester, MA will be giving a one-hour talk titled:

The ribosome in action: Uncovering translation and new stress sensing mechanisms by cryo-EM

ABSTRACT Ribosomes are a central hub for controlling gene expression. Not only do they synthesize proteins, but they potently respond to stress signals. Our lab addresses mechanistic questions concerning ribosome functions, such as: How does the ribosome accurately synthesize proteins? How does the ribosome sense cellular stresses? In my presentation, I will talk about our use of time-resolved cryo-EM and biochemistry to visualize how the ribosome accurately reads the genetic instructions encoded in mRNA and how stalled ribosomes can initiate profound changes in cellular pathways in response to stress.

This seminar will be presented in the ASRC Auditorium and broadcast via Zoom, with snacks and refreshments to start at 11:30am.
