Conversations with Cell Biologists

Discovery Conversations: ASCB 2011 Denver

What's it like to make a significant breakthrough at the bench early in your career? Three ASCB members who had such a "Eureka" moment will join moderator Katherine L. Wilson, Johns Hopkins Medical School, to explore the "inner game" of scientific discovery.

The panel includes Magdalena Bezanilla, University of Massachusetts, Amherst, who devised a reverse engineering protocol to establish a moss as a powerful new model organism for plant cytoskeletal proteins, Christine Jacobs-Wagner, Yale University and Howard Hughes Medical Institute, who found the missing third element of the prokaryotic cytoskeleton, and Dyche Mullins, University of California, San Francisco, who recognized the characteristic 70-degree angle of the Arp2/3 protein complex in cell motility.
