  • Landscape of Risk: Spatial analysis of environment-disease relationships
    December 05, 2013 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

    Sponsored by: Department of Biology
    The Department of Biology’s Life Sciences Seminar Series presents Dr. Colin Robertson, Assistant Professor, Department of Geography & Environmental Studies, Wilfrid Laurier University.

    Dr. Robertson’s laboratory focuses on developing and applying cutting edge spatial techniques to understand dynamic processes. His work lies at the interface of spatial analysis, epidemiology, and ecology. In addition to epidemiology studies in Sri Lanka and Nepal, one of his new citizen science projects is RinkWatch (http://www.rinkwatch.org), which unites citizen engaged environmental science and backyard skating.

  • Chemical biology of the ubiquitin system
    November 28, 2013 1:15 pm - 2:30 pm

    Sponsored by: Department of Biology
    The Life Sciences Seminar Series presents Dr. Mike Tyers, Professor & Principal Investigator, Systems Biology & Synthetic Biology Research Unit, IRIC, University of Montréal.

    Dr. Tyers' research interests focus on the means by which cells communicate with their environment and the processes that implement changes of cellular state, in particular the networks that control cell growth and division. His studies have contributed to the understanding of phosphorylation and ubiquitin-dependent proteolysis in cell cycle regulation, specificity in signal transduction networks and switch-like decisions in complex cellular systems. His efforts to chart protein, genetic and chemical interactions by high throughput approaches have helped to build a global view of cellular regulation. In conjunction, he has developed open source informatics tools and databases for computational interrogation of biological networks, including the BioGRID interaction database. He has recently focused on network-based approaches for chemical biology and early stage drug discovery, notably the systematic identification of chemical genetic interactions and the use of small molecule probes to control the ubiquitin system. He has also begun to implement synthetic biology approaches to re-engineer network function.
