NIH Director's Seminar: Integrative structural cell biology for direct visualization of neuronal regeneration


Dr. Naoko Mizuno

Wilson Hall, NIH Building 1; and NIH videocast

The final lecture in the current season of the NIH Director's Seminar Series will be presented by IRP senior investigator Naoko Mizuno, Ph.D.

Cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) is a cutting-edge technique that bridges the resolution gap between light microscopy and molecular-level observations. Dr. Mizuno's lab focuses on understanding cellular structure remodeling during morphogenesis and signaling. The group uses an integrative approach combining bottom-up methods — biochemical reconstitution and single-particle analysis (SPA) cryo-EM — and top-down methods — in situ cryo-ET and cell imaging — to understand cellular processes. In this talk, Dr. Mizuno will discuss the lab's research on decision-making processes of injured neuronal cells and how they may activate their regeneration switch.
