Doug Cyr of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill studies protein folding and misfolding and the molecules associated with it. His lab recently published a paper in ASCB's journal Molecular Biology of the Cell - DNAJB12 and Hsp70 Triage Arrested Intermediates of N1303K-CFTR for ER Associated-Autophagy. We discuss that paper and his lab's research overall.
The Howard Hughes Medical Institute is adding a new research focus -- 4D Cellular Physiology. On this episode of the Pathways Podcast from the American Society for Cell Biology we chat with Ron Vale, the Vice President and Executive Director of HHMI's Janelia Research Campus, and Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz, a senior group leader also at Janelia, about this new direction and how it will impact the cell biology community.
