SFLC Becomes Graduate Leadership and Development Committee (GLDC)
To better describe its purpose and mission, the Student Faculty Liaison Committee (SFLC), has changed its name to the Graduate Leadership & Development Committee (GLDC).
As the group has evolved over the years, its goals have grown beyond just serving as a student voice on faculty committees to include career and professional development events, scientific outreach to the community, departmental social events, recruiting the next class of Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB) students, and more.
Removing a gene from the cells that produce insulin prevents mice from developing Type 1 diabetes by sparing the cells an attack from their own immune system, a new UW–Madison study shows. The cellular sleight of hand may suggest ways to prevent Type 1 diabetes in high-risk individuals, as well as other diseases in which …
The Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB) — the joint graduate program of the Department of Biochemistry and Department of Biomolecular Chemistry — is full of collaborative faculty. One partnership in particular between the labs of biochemistry professor Michael Cox and biomolecular chemistry professor James Keck goes back nearly two decades. And a new National Institutes of Health grant to study the …
Integrated Program in Biochemistry (IPiB) faculty member Jon Audhya was awarded The Ride Scholarship on Jan. 18, 2020 at the Wisconsin Hockey’s 4th Annual Face-off Against Cancer game for his exemplary discoveries in 2019. This award will help fund Audhya’s further studies of metastatic cancers. Audhya’s lab focuses on membrane biology and cell migration and …
Leave that last banana on the kitchen counter for a few too many days and you might find your forgetfulness rewarded by an invasion of fruit flies. These tiny pests, despite all outward appearances, actually share many important biological similarities with humans that make them valuable models for studying human disease, including cancers. Melissa Harrison, …
Patrick Cramer of the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry will give the prestigious UW–Madison 2020 Hilldale Lecture in Biological Sciences in late January. All members of the campus community and public are invited to attend the lecture on eukaryotic gene expression and transcription at 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, Jan. 23 in the Ebling Symposium …
