CBC Catalyst Workshop
DATE: July 5, 2011
LOCATION: University of Chicago Campus
The inaugural CBC Catalyst Workshop took place at UChicago campus on July 5, 2011. CBC Scientific Director Shohei Koide provided an introduction to CBC and CBC-funded Awards, specifically focusing on the CBC Catalyst Award program. Dr. Koide’s remarks were followed by three ‘case studies’ by the UChicago faculty who are members of three collaborative research teams that were successful in securing the CBC Catalyst Awards in the past:
- Jerrold Turner (UChicago), Lawrence Miller (UIC); CBC Catalyst Award 2007 for the project titled:
Multiplexed Imaging of Transient Molecular Complex Dynamics in vivo
- Fotini Gounari (UChicago), Steven T. Rosen (NU); CBC Catalyst Award 2010 for the project titled:
The Molecular Basis of Genomic Instability: A Genome Wide Approach
- Jun Yin (UChicago), Hiroaki Kiyokawa (NU); CBC Catalyst Award 2011 for the project titled:
Identify cell cycle-regulatory substrates ubiquitinated by the apoptosis inhibitor BRUCE
Following the three ‘case-studies’ a member of the CBC Scientific Review Board, Sam Sisodia (UChicago), spoke about the Catalyst review process and opened the floor to a vivid Q&A.
The workshop was well attended mainly by UChicago faculty as well as a few of guests from UIC and NU.
