Basic Sciences Division

Meetings / Clubs / Events

The Division hosts a network of informal meetings, clubs and seminars to encourage collaborations and foster the exchange of information and ideas. Our clubs are composed of scientists with common research interests. This collaborative approach to science naturally produces numerous publications jointly authored by members of different laboratories in the division.

2018-2019 Schedule

What: The Seattle area mitosis group consists of six labs (Asbury, Biggins, CabernardDavis, Paredez, and Wordeman), who are all interested in fundamental questions regarding the process of mitosis. There is a diverse array of organisms and approaches taken. All aspects of the structure, regulation and mechanics of mitosis are studied.
When:
First Thursday of every month (except January and summer), 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Other Groups

chromatin club

Chromatin Club
A semi-weekly journal club with an emphasis on the increasing importance of chromatin research for understanding chromosomal processes, development and disease.
Contact: Steve Henikoff or Toshio Tsukiyama

developmental biology group

Developmental Biology Group
The group consists of faculty members of the Center for Developmental Biology at the University of Washington, and the faculty members of the Developmental Biology Program at the FHCRC. The Developmental Biology Group was formed in 1999 to promote the discipline of Developmental Biology at both institutions. 
Contact: Cecilia Moens 

structural biology group

Structural Biology and Molecular Biophysics Journal Club
The group consists of two laboratories focused on the use of macromolecular crystallography (Barry Stoddard and Roland Strong) to determine the three-dimensional structures of biological macromolecules. These laboratories are complemented by several additional laboratories: one that is focused on computational structure prediction and design (Phil Bradley), one that conducts solution-based protein mapping studies of large complexes involved in gene transcription (Steve Hahn) and a third that conducts drug target validation and drug screening studies (Julian Simon). A significant focus of the Structural Biology Group is the exploitation of structural information to engineer macromolecules for therapeutic applications, including gene correction, vaccine development, and drug discovery.

2017 Retreat

The Basic Sciences Division Retreat was held on September 11, 2017 at the Museum of Flight. It was a full day of events, attended by 165 participants including faculty, lab members, postdocs, current and incoming graduate students, as well as administrative staff from the Division and the Center. Participants heard faculty share their research, attended two scientific poster sessions, tested their piloting skills on the museum's flight simulators, and ended the day with a reception and the option to go on a docent-led tour of one of several museum exhibits.
