The role of lipid transport proteins and membrane contact sites in membrane lipid homeostasis

Forum Hall, Palmer Commons
Audience This is a public event.

Karin Reinisch, Ph.D., will discuss lessons learned about membrane lipid homeostasis via characterization of lipid transport proteins resident at membrane contact sites, including SMP- and chorein-N-domain containing proteins.  


Karin Reinisch, Ph.D.
Jean and David W. Wallace Professor of Cell Biology and of Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry; Director of Graduate Studies
Yale University School of Medicine
Karin Reinisch received her B.A. (summa cum laude) and subsequently her Ph.D. in chemistry from Harvard University, where she also completed post-doctoral studies. She trained as a structural biologist, first with William N. Lipscomb during her graduate studies, and then with Stephen C. Harrison as a postdoctoral fellow. She opened her own laboratory in Yale’s Department of Cell Biology in 2001, and has been working to dissect the molecular mechanisms underlying membrane trafficking and membrane biology.
