Peter Walter, "From protein folding to cognition: the serendipitous path of discovery"

February 8, 2016 - 4:00pm
Clark Center Auditorium S001

Free and open to the public

Dr. Peter Walter is a Professor of Biochemistry at the UCSF, and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute His research lays the groundwork for treating a range of human diseases related to defective protein folding and transport. Professor Walter received the Lasker Basic Medical Research Award in 2014, and won the 2015 Vilcek Prize in Biomedical Science for his pioneering work on how proteins are transported between cellular compartments and for unraveling the components of a regulatory mechanism that cells use to handle stress tied to the aggregation of misshapen proteins.
