Jason Gestwicki, "The chemical biology of protein misfolding disease"

November 27, 2017 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001

Free and open to the public.

Dr. Jason Gestwicki is a Professor at the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases at UCSF School of Medicine. The Gestwicki Lab is interested in how molecular chaperones, such as Hsp70 and Hsp90, work together to maintain protein homostasis, which is the balance of protein folding, trafficking and turnover. Understanding this delicate balance is important because protein homeostasis is dramatically disrupted in many diseases, especially neurodegeneration and cancer.
