Woody Lectureship series

Colorado State University's life sciences research community is invited to hear a lecture by Dr. Thomas Pollard titled, Quantitative analysis of the mechanisms of cellular motility, endocytosis and cytokinesis.

Pollard has pioneered the use of a combination of biochemistry, biophysics, microscopy and genetics to investigate how cells control the assembly and disassembly of actin filaments during cellular movements.

Please join us for the second seminar of the Woody Lectureship supported by an endowment established by Robert and A-Young Woody upon their retirement from the Department of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology.
