Virtual seminar series: lipids and lipid signaling

Every Friday at 2 PM (New York) | 1 PM (Chicago) | 11 AM (Los Angeles) 

7 PM (London) | 8 PM (Berlin) | 11:30 PM (New Delhi) | 3 AM (Tokyo, Saturday) | 2 AM (Singapore, Saturday) | 5 AM (Sydney, Saturday)

In light of the cancellation of many meetings, LRD members John Burke of the University of Victoria and Mike Airola of Stony Brook University have organized a weekly online seminar series. The organizers write, “The focus of this seminar will be on providing opportunities to graduate students and postdocs who are missing the ability to give talks at conferences.” 

The meeting takes place via Zoom. To sign up to attend, add your name and email address to this Google sheet. If you’re interested in presenting, please contact John Burke. Here is the schedule for the next few weeks, with links to presenters’ publications: 

April 3 | PI4P roles in cellular regulation
Jacob McPhail, Burke lab, University of Victoria 
Milena Timcenko, Nissen lab, Aarhus University

April 10th | Novel tools to study lipid signalling
Josh Pemberton, Balla lab, NICHHD
Dongjun Liang, Baskin lab, Cornell University 

April 17th | Spatiotemporal control of lipid signaling
Reika Tei, Baskin Lab, Cornell University 
Claudia Mattheus, Daumke lab, Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine
