Whitaker Hall, Room 218
Dr. Kinzer-Ursem, who holds a bachelor’s degree in Bioengineering from the University of Toledo and Master and Ph.D. degrees in Chemical Engineering from the University of Michigan, will present.
Mathematical models at varying scales, from thermodynamically complete models of protein activation in well-mixed conditions to larger multi-protein interaction models in spatially inhomogeneous environments are used to understand how dynamic protein interactions influence cellular behaviors.
Model predictions are experimentally validated using both traditional and cutting edge biochemical techniques. We are currently developing new methods for high-throughput quantitative characterization of protein biochemistry using protein tagging and unique microfluidic platforms.
