Biophysical Society announces new and notable symposium speakers

The Biophysical Society has announced the speakers for the New and Notable Symposium at the Societys 51st Annual Meeting in Baltimore, MD. The new and notable symposium highlights the latest and most exciting discoveries in biophysics. Speakers are nominated and selected by the Societys program committee. The session will take place Monday March 5, 2007 from 10:45 AM 12:45 PM in ballroom 1 of the Baltimore Convention Center.

New and Notable Symposium Speakers and Information:

Conformational Entropy in Molecular Recognition by Proteins: A First Example from the Calmodulin System. Joshua Wand, University of Pennsylvania.

Dr. Wand has recently made a fundamental breakthrough in our understanding of the role conformational entropy in molecular recognition. Using side chain dynamics obtained from NMR, Wand's group has characterized the binding of calmodulin to a range of biologically relevant targets, resulting in a broad range (including a sign change) in the residual entropy change upon binding. These studies reveal the critical role of dynamics in the evolution of high affinity binding.

Many Plasma Membrane Proteins like the Phosphoinositide PIP2. Bertil Hille, University of Washington.

Dr. Hille has created new tools to rapidly decrease the level of PIP2 in cells, and has used the tools to investigate the effect of PIP2 on ion channels. The results, and the new tools, are both new and notable.

Probing the Molecular Architectures of Bacterial and Mammalian Cells with 3D Electron Microscopy. Sriram Subramaniamm, NIH.

Dr. Subramaniam has generated new images of the receptor-kinase complex that regulates bacterial chemotaxis. In recent years it has been proposed that the complexes cluster at the poles of the cells, and Subramaniam has generated the first pictures of these complexes. The images are obtained using live cells rapidly frozen in aqueous media without f
