Class of 1960 Scholars Program:
With funds generously provided by the Class of 1960, the BIMO Program invites prominent researchers from other institutions to campus to present a public seminar and then to meet privately in a discussion and dinner setting with a select group of students (chosen for the calendar year to be the BIMO Class of 1960 Scholars).
Seminar Title: Proteostasis – Protecting the Proteome in Biology, Aging, and Disease
Dr. Morimoto studies the fundamental events that underlie the appearance of misfolded proteins and their consequence to protein homeostasis, cellular function, and organismal adaptation and survival using C. elegans as a model system. See his website for more details concerning his research.
