Description

Dr. Colón-Ramos, Associate Professor of Cell Biology, Yale Neurodegeneration and Repair School of Medicine's Program in Cellular Neurosciencenovel, discusses unpublished work that demonstrates that localization of PFK-1 to synaptic sites is important for maintaining the vesicle cycle, and for proper synaptic function. These discoveries were partially generated by a group of undergraduate students in the lab. While discussing the discoveries and their significance, he will also discuss the chronology of discovery, to exemplify the accidental routes by which knowledge is produced. Dr. Colón-Ramos hopes that this talk helps to both present the new knowledge we have generated, while providing a radiography of the process of discovery.
