“Functional Organization of Mammalian Cells”

Ravi Iyengar, PhD

Dr. Ravi Iyengar’s talk will focus on how regulatory networks function to control subcellular functions in response to receptor signals. The roles of cell shape, spatial organization within the cell, and mutual chemical selectivity between cellular components in controlling the dynamic topology of regulatory networks will be discussed.  From this analysis he will attempt to draw conclusions of how the topology of regulatory networks enables the cell to coordinate multiple  subcellular functions required for cell-level responses.


2:00 PM - 3:00 PM: 1131 Bioinformatics Building


“The Genius of Dogs”

Brian Hare, PhD 

 We have learned more in the past decade about the mind of the dog than we had in the previous century.  Dr. Brian Hare will discuss his own research that unlocked the genius of dogs.  He will also discuss our new citizen science approach to address long unanswered questions regarding breed differences in canine cognition.  The audience will leave with an understanding of the revolution that is occurring that will forever change how we understand dogs.
