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.
Prachee Avasthi, Ph.D.
Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth
Department of Biochemistry and Cell Biology
The Avasthi's Lab uses the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii to study formation of the cellular antenna, the cilium, and how its assembly is coordinated with other cellular processes. They are currently using this system to study coordination of actin- and microtubule-based trafficking as well as signaling mediated regulation of flagellar assembly kinetics.
