Nov. 17, 2016 The Menu

Dec. 5, 2016 Cafe Scientifique of Iowa City Presents Professor E. Dale Abel, MD, PhD. Pictures "The 2016 Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology". In October this year, the Nobel Assembly awarded Yoshinori Ohsumi the Nobel Prize in Medicine or Physiology “for discoveries of mechanisms for autophagy”. Autophagy is a process of cellular recycling wherein a cell destroys itself and packages the debris for recycling.  Through a series of sophisticated experiments using baker’s yeast, Ohsumi was able to identify the genes essential to this complex process.  Professor Abel will take us through this process, discuss its importance in biochemistry  and how this process is important for his work at the University of Iowa.

Dec. 8, 2016 Flyer Hawkeyes in Space Public Lecture: Where does the Universe hide its missing matter? Professor Phil Kaaret (Phys & Astro)
