Science

Harvard Medical School scientist to present at CSU

April 19, 2010

Harvard Medical School's Dr. Jim Hogle, recognized for solving the crystal structure of poliovirus capsid, presents at CSU April 23.

Harvard scientist presents work

The graduate students in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology will be hosting a Distinguished Lecturer Seminar by Jim Hogle from the Department of Biological Chemistry and Molecular Pharmacology at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Hogle will lecture on A multiscale approach to structural characterization of viral cell entry: How poliovirus delivers its genome into the cell.

This seminar will be held on Friday, April 23 at 1 p.m. in Room W-118 Anatomy/Zoology and is open to the scientific community.

About the presenter

Dr. Hogle is a leader in the fields of virology and structural biology who uses innovative structural techniques to capture complex cell-virus interactions. He began his work on viruses during his postdoc and quickly became recognized in the field after he solved the crystal structure of poliovirus capsid, published in Science in 1985.

Since then Dr. Hogle has made many important discoveries in the field virology, spearheading research in host-cell entry by non-enveloped viruses. Today, Dr. Hogle’s lab continues to explore how viruses enter and replicate within the host cell.
