Sep 2Medical School Research Committee/Chair, Ilya Levental, Ph.D. presents Life at the Interface: the Biology of Cellular Membranes MSB 2.103 , 9:00 am – 12:00 pm
Sep 2, 2015 Thirty percent of the human genome encodes for membrane embedded proteins, without including proteins interacting with the membrane via lipid modifications, direct lipid-binding domains, or protein-protein interactions with membrane-embedded proteins. Taken together, it is likely that the majority of cellular bioactivity occurs at membrane surfaces mediated by both permanent and transient lipid-protein interactions. Despite this, the mechanistic roles that membranes play in cellular physiology remain poorly understood, partly due to the unique methodological challenges associated with their isolation and manipulation. This collaborative workshop brings together four UTHealth investigators at the forefront of research into the detailed physiology of cell membranes. Their work exposes the central roles played by membranes and their constituent lipids in stem cell differentiation, cancer signaling, protein folding, and sub-cellular traffic. Speakers: Mikhail Bogdanov, Ph.D., Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Guangwei Du, Ph.D., Department of Integrative Biology and Pharmacology Andrew Bean, Ph.D.,Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy Ilya Levental, Ph.D., Department of Integrative Biology and Pharmacology
Sep 19Baylor Global Initiatives presents Baylor Global Hack-a-Thon TMCx accelerator , 8:00 am – 5:00 pm
Sep 19, 2015 The Baylor Global Hack-a-Thon calls upon some of the best and brightest minds to be a part of something exciting, inspiring, and fun that will impact the way healthcare is delivered to millions of people around the world. The hack-a-thon is a summit that provides a fun and supportive environment for students, engineers, nurses, physicians, pharmacists and other allied health professionals, entrepreneurs, bioinformatics and computer programmers, as well as designers and business professionals to brainstorm and rapidly develop creative and novel ideas. Goals of the hack-a-thon include: -Innovative solutions for critical clinical challenges in low- and middle-income countries -Foster entrepreneurship in medtech space -Advance knowledge sharing across disciplines -Catalyze better innovations for resource-constrained settings The Baylor Global Innovation Center will employ a “hack-a-thon” approach to determine adequate solutions for low resources settings around the world. The hack-a-thon begins with strategically chosen healthcare leaders presenting current healthcare problems to all attendees. The attendees work together to come up with innovative solutions that tackle the multi-faceted healthcare issues faced by individuals and communities around the world. The resulting concepts or prototypes are judged, and prizes are given to the top three ideas. Registration ends 9/9/2015.
