The Office of the Vice President for Research is pleased to announce the John P. Oliver Nano@Wayne Seminar on Tuesday, October 9, 2012 at the Welcome Center at 2:30 p.m.  This seminar will be presented by Dr. Valerica Raicu, Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Physics and an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Biological Sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

The title of the seminar will be:  "Probing Stoichiometry and Quaternary Structure of Membrane Protein Complexes in Live Cells".   The first part of this presentation will review the main theoretical and technological advances that led to our recent development of Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) into a method for determination of the stoichiometry and quaternary structure of membrane protein complexes in living cells.  The second part will review our recent results obtained from in vivo studies of oligomeric complexes of several membrane receptors and transporters.

A small reception will follow in the Welcome Center lobby -  3:30-4:00 p.m.

This seminar is jointly sponsored by the OVPR and Nano Multi-Disciplinary Incubator.

Please note:   Parking is available  in Parking Structure #6, Visitors Gate (on Putnam between Cass and Woodward) in the visitors section.  Bring your parking ticket to the seminar registration desk in the Welcome Center to be validated.
