Archived Event: Cell-Cell and Cell-Matrix Proteins in the Cardiomyocyte: Focus on ZO Proteins
Pioneers in Biomedical Research Seminar presented by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute at VTC
About This Lecture
Dr. Ross's lab has studied the role cell-cell and cell-matrix proteins in the myocardium for many years. For this the lab makes extensive use of mouse models, cells derived from them and as possible, even human genetics. In this seminar he will summarize data from some of his prior work and primarily focus on new data where he and his lab have identified unique roles of Zonula Occluden-1 in the myocardium.
This is a free event hosted by the Fralin Biomedical Research Institute and co-sponsored by the institute's Addiction Recovery Research Center and the Center for Transformative Research on Health Behaviors. The Fralin Biomedical Research Institute Pioneers in Biomedical Research Program offers the expertise of a range of scientists who are exploring frontiers in biomedical research. These seminars are open to Virginia Tech and Carilion Clinic faculty, students, and staff.
