How to Write a Research Proposal Workshop

Leah Carroll, Haas Scholars Program Manager
Aug 30
12:30 - 2 p.m.
If you need to write a grant propopsal, this workshop is for you! You'll get a headstart on defining your research question, developing a project plan, presenting your qualifications, and creating a realistic budget. The workshop is open to all UC-Berkeley students (undergraduate, graduate, and visiting scholars) regardless of academic discipline. It will be especially useful for...

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: "Towards the assembly of a synthetic bacterial cell"

Kumaran S. Ramamurthi
Aug 31
12 - 1 p.m.
Ramamurthi’s laboratory studies fundamental mechanisms that cells use to differentiate and divide in an effort to understand how these processes may go awry during disease. His lab focuses on how proteins localize to particular subcellular locations and how they subsequently assemble to form large structures during development and cell division. Recently, he discovered that the shape of cellular...

4 - 5 p.m.

Plant and Microbial Biology Buchanan Endowed Lecture: "Mechanistic Basis of Metabolic Evolution in Plants"

Jing-Ke Weng
Sep 7
12 - 1 p.m.
Weng's lab has broad interests in understanding the origin and evolution of plant specialized metabolism at enzyme, pathway, and systems levels, as well as how plants exploit discrete small molecules to interact with their surrounding biotic and abiotic environments. Their work in plant metabolic evolution impacts a fundamental question in biology – how do complex traits evolve in a Darwinian...

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "Closing the deal: Arabidopsis LORELEI is required for pollen tube reception by the female gametophyte"

Ravi Palanivelu
Sep 14
12 - 1 p.m.
Palanivelu's laboratory studies how plant cells communicate with each other using pollen tube interactions with pistils during Arabidopsis thaliana reproduction as a model system. They are currently identifying the molecular mechanisms that underly specific pollen tube functions in A. thaliana such as germination, growth, guidance and growth arrest in the synergid cell of the female gametophyte.

Plant and Microbial Biology Plant Seminar: "MscS-Like Mechanosensitive Ion Channels: Modular Sensors and Reporters of Membrane Tension”

Elizabeth Haswell
Oct 12
12 - 1 p.m.
The Haswell laboratory's long-term goal of research is to reveal the molecular mechanisms that underly the perception and transduction of mechanical signals in plants.

Plant and Microbial Biology Micro Seminar: “Cell shape regulation in Caulobacter crescentus: from the cytoskeleton to the cell wall"

Erin Goley
Oct 19
12 - 1 p.m.
The Goley Lab is broadly interested in understanding cellular organization and dynamic reorganization, with particular focus on the roles of the cytoskeleton in these phenomena. The lab uses cell biological, biochemical, genetic, and structural approaches to dissect cytoskeletal processes with the aim of understanding how they work in molecular detail. Currently, they are focused on investigating...
