Postdoc Candidate Seminar

For many cellular behaviors, it is essential that protein signaling is precisely coordinated in space and time. Such spatiotemporal dynamics can only be fully understood using tools that visualize and manipulate protein behavior in living cells. I will present our recent genetically encoded tools for light or ligand mediated control of protein activity. I will also discuss how we employed these molecular tools to interrogate the cytoskeletal signaling that includes Src family kinases, Rho family guanine exchange factors, and small GTPases in vivo.

This seminar is open to faculty, scientists, and students from Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience (MPFI), Florida Atlantic University (FAU), and the Scripps Research Institute Florida, located on FAU’s John D. MacArthur Campus in Jupiter, Florida. If you belong to an institution outside of the Jupiter campus and would like to attend, please send a request to
