Nobel Prize Winner Randy Schekman, Ph.D., Presents “Cell Membranes, Cell Secretion and Their Connection to Human Diseases” at BCC @ 7 p.m., Wed., Oct. 8

24 September 2014

Dr. Randy Schekman

Dr. Randy Schekman, Nobel Prize Winner 2013

2013 Nobel Prize winner Randy Schekman, Ph.D. will present “Cell Membranes, Cell Secretion and their Connection to Human Diseases,” 7-8 p.m., Wed., Oct. 8 at Berkeley City College’s auditorium, 2050 Center St. The free and open to the public event is sponsored by the California Institute of Regenerative Medicine and Berkeley City College’s Biotechnology Program. Dr. Shekman is a professor in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at UC Berkeley.

 

Dr. Schekman, who shared the 2013 Nobel Prize in Medicine with Dr. Thomas Sudhof and Dr. James Rothman, will present how different cellular proteins “read” molecular signposts to find their way inside or outside of a cell. For 30 years, Dr. Schekman has studied membrane-bound sacs, or vesicles, as they move within a cell. Using a brilliantly conceived genetic screen, he established biochemical reactions that reproduced specific secretory pathways and isolated the first purified inter-organelle transport vesicles.

 

Dr. Schekman is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. He is a recipient of the Eli Lilly Award in microbiology and immunology; the Lewis S. Rosenstiel Award in basic biomedical science; the Gairdner International Award; the Amgen Award of the Protein Society; the Albert Lasker Award in Basic Medical Research; and the Louisa Gross Horwitz Prize of Columbia University. In 2013, Dr. Schekman was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine jointly with Thomas Südhof and James Rothman for their contributions to understanding vesicle trafficking.
