Sept 3rd speakers: Keren Lasker and Mart Loog


On Thursday Sept 3rd Dr. Lasker and Dr. Loog spoke about the complex sequence-to-function relationships in a phase separating bacterial protein and rational design of phospho-regulatory networks, respectively.

The Intrinsically Disordered Protein PopZ: From Regulation of Asymmetry in Bacteria to Synthetic Applications

Dr. Keren Lasker ([Currently] Stanford University, USA)

Postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University

Dr. Lasker is currently a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University where she combines cell biology, biochemistry, microscopy, and computational approaches to understand how phase separation contributes to biological adaptation.
