The Basic Sciences Division hosts a weekly Current Biology Seminar series where leading-edge researchers are invited from around the world to share their latest scientific breakthroughs. Lectures are typically every Tuesday and are held as virtual events.
Jonathan Cooper, Ph.D.
Professor, Division of Basic Sciences, Fred Hutch
Dr. Cooper studies the networks of proteins that cells use to communicate with each other — networks that also play a critical role in the transformation of healthy cells into cancer cells. In particular, his team studies how some proteins undergo chemical changes that regulate how healthy and cancerous cells divide, become more specialized and migrate in the body.
