"Calcium Signaling in Primary Cilia During Development and Disease" by Markus Delling
Sponsored by department(s) : Pharmacology
Event Date : December 5, 2019
Start Time : 4:00 pm
Time Duration: 60 minutes
Location : PINN 1-17
Description: Hosted by Bimal Desai, Markus Delling, PhD is an Assistant Professor, Physiology, School of Medicine, UCSF, San Francisco, CA
Delling Lab studies the molecular mechanisms of how primary cilia utilize ion channels and GPCRs to sense their local environment and control such important processes as left-right asymmetry formation. Our long-term goal is to understand the signals activating ciliary Ca2+ channels and to identify the resulting downstream cilia-dependent signaling cascades. We use a variety of different approaches including mouse genetics, RNA sequencing, cutting edge primary cilia Ca2+ imaging, electrophysiology and biochemistry.
