Our third chalk-talk speaker will be Dr James Locke. He has recently moved from Caltech (USA), where he has worked in the group of Prof Michael Elowitz, to the Sainsbury Lab at University of Cambridge (UK), where he leads his own group. The research of Dr Locke is centered around signal transduction processes and gene circuit dynamics, which he investigates at the single cell level by a combination of experimental and modelling techniques. A particular feature of his work is the analysis of the role of noise in such systems.
Dr Locke will visit us from 30 October until 1 November 2012. His general lecture entitled “Dynamic signal encoding strategies in cells” will be given on 31 October at 14:15 in Lundmarkssalen in the Astronomy Building. Coffee and cake will be served at 14:00 in the foyer. All welcome! The chalk talk session with interested PhD students and Postdocs will take place at 16:00 at CBBP (external guests: please register by email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to attend the chalk talk).
