CCAM Seminar Series Speaker: Radhika Subramanian, Assistant Professor, Department of Molecular Biology MGH, Department of Genetics HMS Title: "Building a cilium for Hedgehog signaling" Abstract: "For a living cell to function properly, its cellular processes must be strictly controlled not only in time but also in space. We are interested in how intracellular spatial organization on the micron-length scale is achieved by the collective activity of nanometer-sized proteins. We investigate this problem in the context of the microtubule cytoskeleton. By ‘building’ or reconstituting microtubule-based architectures from the individual components, we aim to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that direct spatial organization within a cell. In this seminar, I will discuss our recent work on mechanisms that regulate the architecture of the primary cilium, a solitary antenna-like structure on the cell surface that is required for cellular signaling."
