Yale UCL Senior Scientist Lecture Series: Membrane Dynamics and Phosphoinositide Signaling in the Endocytic Pathway - Lessons from the Neuronal Synapse

Endocytosis plays housekeeping functions in all cells and has highly specific functions in a variety of specialized cells. This lecture will focus on studies of the mechanisms underlying membrane deformation and membrane fission.

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.
