Title: "Expansion HiC?"
Job Dekker, PhD
Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and Professor and co-director of the Program in Systems Biology, Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.
Job Dekker's laboratory studies how genomes are folded in three dimensions. He has invented the chromosome conformation capture (3C) technology and since then has pioneered development and application of a series of molecular, genomic and computational approaches, such as 5C and Hi-C to map and analyze the three-dimensional folding of genomes at Kb resolution. His work had led to new insights into the internal organization of chromatin fibers, the formation of chromatin looping interactions involved in long-range gene regulation, the organization of the interphase nucleus, the structure of metaphase chromosomes, and the general folding principles of complete genomes.
8:30-8:50 Pacific Time, then 10-minute discussion and Q&A
Title: “Ultra-high resolution 3D fluorescence imaging of whole mammalian cells (and nuclei)”
Associate Professor of Cell Biology and of Biomedical Engineering
Dr. Bewersdorf joined the department of Cell Biology in 2009 coming from The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, where he led a research group from 2005 to 2009. The previous 8 years, he had trained and worked with Dr. Stefan W. Hell at the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Goettingen, Germany. Dr. Bewersdorf received his Master's degree (Dipl. Phys.) in 1998 and his doctoral degree in physics (Dr. rer. nat.) in 2002, both from the University of Heidelberg, Germany.
An optical physicist/biophysicist by training, Dr. Bewersdorf has been a long-time contributor to the emerging field of novel super-resolution light microscopy techniques. More recently, he has expanded his research interests to the application of these new technologies and the biophysical interpretation of their data.
