"Maintaining the End: Telomere Replication and Its Connections to Human Health" - Virginia Zakian
Princeton molecular biologist Virginia Zakian will deliver the final talk in the 2010-11 President's Lecture Series at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, April 28, in Thomas Laboratory, Room 3.
Zakian will discuss her research on telomeres, the physical endpoints of chromosomes, in a lecture titled "Maintaining the End: Telomere Replication and Its Connections to Human Health." Zakian will describe her lab's work on telomeres in baker's yeast and how these studies inspire novel ideas for regulation of telomere activity in humans.
Zakian is Princeton's Harry C. Wiess Professor in the Life Sciences and a professor of molecular biology.
Audience: This event is open to the public.
