Donald K. Buffmire Visiting Lectureship in Medicine
Genetic Rush Hour:
How the Proteins of our Cells Follow Traffic Signs in Normal and Genetic Diseases
On March 2, you are invited to join us for a special presentation from Nobel Prize-winning cell biologist Dr. Randy Schekman.
The Buffmire Lecture Series is made possible through a grant from the Flinn Foundation and brings renowned medical practitioners to Arizona.
Next month, Buffmire will be joining forces with Mini-Medical School, the College of Medicine – Phoenix’s community outreach event.
Dr. Schekman, a professor of cell and developmental biology at the University of California, Berkeley, will help the audience look inside – their cells, that is. Human cells create thousands of different protein molecules that are responsible for duplicating a cell and its chromosomes.
How does this process work and what goes wrong in genetic diseases? The human body is performing millions of small tasks every single second. Join the College of Medicine – Phoenix to learn about some of these processes from a renowned, Nobel Prize-winning expert.
