Toledo CellulART 2020
will be held on October 23rd
ABOUT THE EVENT
Toledo CellulART is a 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.
This year's event will feature Dr. Kathy Gould as our keynote speaker and Dr. David S. Goodsell as our Scientist/Artist Speaker
About our 2020 Toledo CellulART Speakers
Kathleen L. Gould, Ph.D.
Professor in the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology at Vanderlbilt University
Kathleen L. Gould runs an internationally recognized research program that has made fundamental, pioneering discoveries in the mechanisms that control cell division using a multi-disciplinary approach that includes super-resolution microscopy, mass spectrometry-based proteomics, genetics, structural biology, and biochemistry. Dr. Gould and colleagues have published over 160 peer-reviewed articles and literature reviews in this field, and they continue to be fascinated by the question of how the components of the cell division machinery are assembled and regulated to ensure the exquisite spatial and temporal control of cell division.
In addition to her research accomplishments, Dr. Gould is committed to the education and training of the next generation of scientists. In her laboratory, Dr. Gould has trained over 30 undergraduate students, and over 50 pre-doctoral and postdoctoral scientists. She currently serves as Director of Graduate Student Support and Associate Dean for Biomedical Sciences in the Vanderbilt University School of Medicine. In these roles, she works to shape institutional and national strategies to enhance and broaden training of biomedical pre- and post-doctoral fellows so that they are prepared to enter the biomedical workforce of the future.
David S. Goodsell, Ph.D.
Professor of Computational Biology at the Scripps Research Institute and Research Professor at Rutgers State University
David S. Goodsell currently holds a dual appointment as Professor of Computational Biology at the Scripps Research Institute and Research Professor at Rutgers State University. He 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.
