The Institute for NanoBioTechnology Summer Seminar Series will present Justin Taraska, from the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, for a discussion on “Understanding the Molecular Topology of the Plasma Membrane.”
Taraska, PI at NHLBI, is a 2012 PECASE recipient, the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government to outstanding scientists and engineers beginning their independent careers. Taraska studies how vesicles fuse with and are recaptured from the cell surface in excitable cells. He seeks to identify the proteins that control these processes and determine their impact on human health and disease. Focusing on techniques that utilize fluorescence to image the molecular behavior of proteins in parallel with using evanescent field, spectral, and confocal microscopy to image the behavior of individual vesicles in real time.
