Thursday   1   November   2018
Sir Anthony Epstein lecture - Nuclear transfer and its contribution and understanding of cell differentiation
Organised by School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Sir John Gurdon
Lecture Theatre 1, School of Chemistry, Cantock's Close , 5:00 - 7:00pm  
During his career, Dr Gurdon concentrated on nuclear transplantation in the frog Xenopus. He has carried out a range of experiments with this material, discovering the value of messenger RNA microinjection, mechanisms of response to morphogen gradients, and, most recently, mechanisms of nuclear reprogramming by Xenopus oocytes and eggs.   Further information is available
Free to attend, but booking is required.   Contact  Professor Eugenia Piddini and Professor Rafael Car  on +44 (0)117 33 12083  or cmm-admin@bristol.ac.uk

Tuesday   4   December   2018
Inaugural lecture: Rho GTPase networks and cancer progression
Organised by School of Cellular and Molecular Medicine
Professor Anne Ridley
Priory Road lecture theatre, Priory Road , 6:00 - 8:00pm  
Rho GTPases are intracellular signalling proteins that regulate cytoskeletal dynamics and cell adhesion. I will discuss how dynamic crosstalk between Rho GTPases and their interacting proteins modulates the actin cytoskeleton, cell adhesion and cell migration.   Further information is available
Free to attend, but booking is required. There will be drinks and nibbles after the lecture.   Contact  the School  on +44 (0)117 - 33 12083  or cmm-admin@bristol.ac.uk
