Toledo CellulART 2020
will be held on Friday October 23, 2020
ABOUT THE EVENT
Toledo CellulART is an ASCB sponsored meeting that brings together the art and scientific communities of Northwestern Ohio, Southern Michigan, and Northeastern Indiana to appreciate the link between art and science while also promoting collaboration, interaction, and discussion between researchers working with the cytoskeleton.
Dr. Kathy Gould
Dr. Gould received her Ph.D. from the University of California, San Diego and performed postdoctoral studies with Dr. Paul Nurse at Oxford University. Shortly after establishing her own laboratory to study cell cycle control at Vanderbilt University, Dr. Gould became an Investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. She is currently the Louise B. McGavock Professor.
She is the associate dean for Biomedical Sciences and the director of the Office of Graduate Student Support.
The Gould Lab studies the proteins and signaling pathways that regulate cytokinesis and couple cell division to chromosome segregation, using cutting edge approaches in proteomics/mass spectrometry and live cell imaging, in combination with genetics, biochemistry, and structural biology.
Dr. David Goodsell
David S. Goodsell, Ph.D.
Professor of Computational Biology at the Scripps Research Institute and Research Professor at Rutgers State University
David S. Goodsell divides his time between research and science outreach. His research centers on methods for computational structural biology and their application to drug design, protein function prediction, and modeling of the molecular structure of entire cells. Current work includes development and applications of CellPACK, a new method for creating three-dimensional atomic models of large portions of cells, and continued development of AutoDock, a widely-used computational docking program used for drug design and virtual screening. He is applying these methods to the structure and function of bacterial cells, with a strong focus on bacterial nucleoids, as well as work into the structural mechanisms of HIV-1 budding and maturation. In his science outreach work, he has developed new visual methods for exploring molecular and cellular structure. This includes two decades of work on depiction of the cellular mesoscale, and development of non-photorealistic rendering methods for molecular and cellular subjects. He currently creates outreach materials for the RCSB Protein Data Bank, including a popular monthly column that presents molecular structure and function for general audiences. He has written four general-interest books on molecular biology, cell biology and bionanotechnology, and has collaborated with science museums, filmmakers, educators and popular authors on the creation of educational and outreach materials.
We would like to extend a thank you to all those who attended and supported the 3rd annual Toledo CellulART! We look forward to seeing you again this year.
