  • Expert in cryo-electron microscopy to join Rockefeller faculty | Newswire
    called capsids It was like looking into a different world Some people are fascinated by the universe I became fascinated by the very small structures that can t be seen with the eye alone Walz says Because I am a very visual person electron microscopy made sense for me because you always see what you are studying Following his Ph D work Walz moved to the University of Sheffield in the United Kingdom where as a postdoc he determined the two dimensional structures of three photosynthetic complexes of membrane proteins from the bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides After joining the faculty of Harvard Medical School in 1999 he continued studying the structures of other aquaporins including aquaporin 0 a water channel in the eye s lens that also acts as an adhesive for cell membranes helping to form connections between cells The images we obtain of aquaporin 0 had a high enough resolution that they also revealed the lipids in the surrounding membrane That started to get me interested in how proteins interact with lipids and how proteins and lipids accommodate each other Walz says This interplay remains poorly understood Proteins embedded in the cellular membrane are responsible for carrying out the membrane s functions relaying signals allowing for cargo transport catalyzing reactions and mediating all interactions with the external environment and other cells Studies continue to reveal the structures of these proteins and as a result how they carry out these activities However most of this structural work has been conducted on isolated membrane proteins in solution without the lipid bilayer that is the membrane protein s native environment Meanwhile cellular membranes contain thousands of different lipids and it is being increasingly recognized that this diversity affects most membrane processes as well as the membrane proteins themselves Taking advantage of new

    is permanent secretary of the French Academy of Sciences Lyon s honorary degree recognizes her work in genetics Intrigued by the mottled coat patterns of female mice who had inherited different variants of a color determining gene Lyon inferred that the splotchy coats resulted from random silencing of one of the female mice s two X chromosomes and thus one of two pigment genes in each cell Her theory of X chromosome inactivation suggested an answer to the longstanding question of how female cells can function similarly to male cells which contain X and Y chromosomes helped explain the inheritance of certain diseases and shed light on the mechanisms of epigenetic regulation Lyon received her Ph D from the University of Cambridge and worked at the U K Medical Research Council s center at Harwell from the 1950s Milner is recognized for her research on memory Working with a patient who had undergone surgical removal of several sections of his brain and so lost the ability to create long term memories from new experiences Milner found he could learn and improve upon a challenging drawing skill even though he could not recall performing the task from day to day Her work with him and with other patients showed that episodic and procedural memory are different processes associated with different structures in the brain This led to the hypothesis that the brain has multiple memory systems that govern specific functions Milner received her Ph D from McGill University and a D Sc from the University of Cambridge She is currently a professor of psychology at the Montreal Neurological Institute and McGill University s department of neurology and neurosurgery The graduating students are Lindsay Bellani Jabez Bok Fang Yuan Chang Christine E Cho Eliot Dow Akinori F Ebihara Clark Fisher Ariel Halper
