UC-Berkeley Professor of Cell and Development Biology Presents Distinguished Lecture on Secretion Process of Cells

By todd

Randy Schekman, PhD, professor of cell and development biology at the University of California at Berkeley, will present the lecture at 4 p.m. in the Sam Walton Auditorium on the 10th floor of the Arkansas Cancer Research Center at UAMS. Reservations are not required.

Schekman’s lecture, titled Mechanism of Vesicle Biogenesis and Protein Sorting in the Secretory Pathway, is the Harper D. Boyd Lecture in Genetics and is part of the Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series at UAMS. Schekman’s work has used yeast as a model system for understanding the complex molecular secretion process of cells that enable the body to perform necessary functions.

The lecture may be claimed for up to1.5 hours of Continuing Medical Education (CME) as authorized by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME).
