Posted on 2/8/2010 11:52:28 AM

Dr. Carole Dabney-Smith, a biochemistry professor at Miami University, will visit the Department of Chemistry on Friday, February 12, 2010, to visit with faculty and students and to discuss her research with proteins.

Dr. Dabney-Smith’s group investigates mechanisms of protein transport as it relates to organelle biogenesis. Their research utilizes biochemical and biophysical approaches to cell biology in organello and in vitro, as well as whole cell approaches in vivo.

After meeting with faculty and students in the department, she will present the seminar “Import and Routing of Thylakoid Proteins.”

The seminar is from 3:35 to 4:25 p.m. in Weyandt 149. Light refreshments will be served, and all are welcome to attend.
