The Department of Physics welcomes biophysicist Gaudenz Danuser to present the 38th annual Yunker Lecture. His talk explores the paradigm of “form follows function,” delving into the interplay between cell shape and molecular action that governs function, particularly in cancer cells, on Monday, October 9 in the Memorial Union Horizon Room. The talk, “Cell Shapes Keep Cells in Shape,” will begin at 5 p.m. with a light reception beforehand at 4 p.m. Danuser is the chair of the Lyda Hill Department of Bioinformatics and the director of the Cecil H. and Ida Green Center for Systems Biology at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. His research focuses on measuring and modeling non-genetic mechanisms of cancer metastasis and drug resistance. Making discoveries by computer vision of molecular and cellular mechanisms to enhance observation steers Danuser’s research. We hope to see you at this inspiring talk!
