REF NO.: 2

SUBJECT: Public lecture at Memorial University to discuss protein behaviour in cells

DATE: Oct. 11

A public lecture at Memorial University will focus on understanding how proteins behave in the crowded micro-environment of living cells.

By examining the stability of proteins and their complexes, both in concentrated solutions and in living bacterial cells, Dr. Gary Pielak, a professor from the University of North Carolina, has shown that crowding affects stability and binding, but not always as predicted by simple theory.  

Dr. Pielak’s public lecture, titled Understanding Protein Behaviour in Cells, takes place Thursday, Oct. 17, at 7 p.m. in the Bruneau Centre for Research and Innovation, room IIC-2001.

Admission is free; all are welcome. Limited free parking is available in lot 17.

A reception will follow
