Tuesday Night Seminar: Ming Tan & Christine Sütterlin
We cordially invite you to attend the Tuesday Night Seminar on April 25. The talks will take place in Building D15, room 01.002-004, at 4:30 pm.
Prof Ming Tan - “Regulation of the Chlamydia developmental cycle”
Ming Tan is a Professor at the School of Medicine at the University of California, Irvine. His research group’s general interest is chlamydial infections, particularly disease pathogenesis. More specifically, his research focuses on the mechanisms responsible for the regulation of expression of chlamydial genes by using a wide range of molecular, genetic and bioinformatic approaches, as well as 3D electron microcopy. Additionally, to gain further insight into chlamydial host-pathogen interactions, the group investigates the causes underlying the link between C. trachomatis and cervical cancer at the cellular level.
Dr Christine Sütterlin - “Arms race between Chlamydia and its host cell”
Dr. Christine Sütterlin’s research group at the Department of Development and Cell Biology (University of California, Irvine) focus is chlamydial infection biology. By employing tissue culture infection models and microscopy-based approaches, Dr. Sütterlin’s group aims to investigate host-pathogen interactions, as well as to elucidate the regulation of the biphasic chlamydial lifecycle. Additionally, she has a general interest in understanding the mechanisms responsible for centrosome assembly and the resulting functional significance.
