Biophysics Seminars

The CPBF Seminar Series brings distinguished scientists to Princeton's campus to share recent research studying the  phenomena of life. Topics  range from single molecules to collective behavior in large populations, and span the intersection of physics and the life sciences.  The seminar is organized by a committee of graduate students, postdoctoral fellows, faculty and staff. Current committee members are:

  • Marianne Bauer, CPBF Fellow
  • Po-Ta Chen, Grad Student
  • Christopher Lynn, CPBF Fellow

Jeanne Stachowiak: Disordered protein networks as synergistic drivers of membrane traffic

Mon, Oct 25, 2021, 12:30 pm

Membrane curvature is required for many cellular processes, from assembly of highly curved trafficking vesicles to extension of needle-like filopodia. Consequently, defects in membrane curvature play a role in most human diseases, including altered recycling of receptors in cancer and diabetes, targeting of filopodia by pathogens, and hijacking...
