Real time imaging of dynamic secretory events to define essential genes involved in regulated secretion – 10/20/2014

Dr. Duy Tran Developmental Glycobiology Section, NIDCR, NIH   Regulated secretion is a critical process by which cells deliver molecules to the cell surface and extracellular space. Secreted cargo is synthesized in the endoplasmic reticulum, traverses the Golgi apparatus and is subsequently loaded into secretory vesicles. Secretion occurs in response to an external stimulus and […]

Modeling brain circuitry over a wide range of scales – 11/10/2014

Dr. Pascal Fua École polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne   Electron microscopes (EM) can now provide the nanometer resolution that is needed to image synapses, and therefore connections, while Light Microscopes (LM) see at the micrometer resolution required to model the 3D structure of the dendritic network. Since both the arborescence and the connections are integral […]
