Heidi Hamm, PhD | “Regulation of Exocytosis by inhibitory GPCRs and Gbg subunits”

On Tuesday October 15th, 2019 Dr. Heidi Hamm, a professor of Pharmacology at Vanderbilt University will be speaking about the regulation of exocytosis by inhibitory GPCR’s and G protein beta gamma subunits. Exocytosis of presynaptic vesicles is a critical process in hormone and neurotransmitter release. Improper regulation of vesicular fusion is associated with well-known disorders such as epilepsy, intellectual disability, autism, and dyskinetic movement disorders.
