Noncoding RNAs : with a viral twist (Yale UCL Senior Scientist Lecture Series)
Chadwick Lecture Theatre |
Gower St | London | WC1E 6BT | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
Joan Steitz, PhD, Sterling Professor of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry, Yale University
This lecture concerns the diversity and habit of viruses to acquire components from their host cells, utilizing them in unanticipated ways to enhance their life cycle. Particular reference will be made to noncoding Ribonucleic Acids (RNAs) of gamma herpes viruses, to mechanisms of RNA stability and microRNA biogenesis and function, shedding light on the evolution of viruses and their host organisms.
This lecture will be of interest to the informed general public, to anyone engaged in medical research and to medical professionals. The event is free, and open to all on a first-come, first-served basis, although seats can be reserved in advance (see link below).
Steitz's notable work has been on small nuclear ribonucleoproteins (snRNPs), providing a breakthrough in understanding how RNA is spliced. Today, her studies of noncoding RNAs include microRNAs.
