Seminar series: Stephen Michnick

Our next speaker is Stephen Michnick, a professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the University of Montréal. He will talk about “A nutrient-responsive pathway that determines timing of cell cycle phases through control of cyclin mRNA”.

He will give 2 seminars:

  • on December 12th, 11:00, at UniGE – Sci II, A100, Geneva
  • on December 13th, 12:15, at UNIL – Auditorium A, Génopode Building, Dorigny, Lausanne

More about the speaker

S. Michnick graduated from the University of Toronto and did postdoctoral training at Harvard University with Profs. Stuart Schreiber and Martin Karplus (Nobel Prize, chemistry, 2013).
He trained principally as a biophysical chemist, studying structures and binding of complex cell surface carbohydrate- and protein-protein interactions and mechanism of protein folding.
At the heart of all of his work, protein chemistry remains central, but he has developed an eclectic and diverse research program aimed at studying the organization and dynamics of biochemical networks in living cells and how these networks compute cell-fate decisions.
