Erin Cram, associate professor in biology at Northeastern University, will present "Dynamic Cytoskeletal Reorganization in the C. Elegans Reproductive System."
The Cram lab uses the nematode C. elegans to understand how cells respond to mechanical forces such as stretch. They focus on the reproductive system, which naturally undergoes cycles of stretch and relaxation. Particular interests are in cell-cell coordination of calcium signaling and mechanical regulation of cytoskeletal alignment and contractility.
Renowned opera and art song baritone Keith Phares joins Boston pianist Linda Osborn in a program of new songs. Letting Go, a new cycle by Boston composer Howard Frazin, is the featured work on the program, rounded out by seven new songs written for the occasion by Amherst College’s own student composers. Frazin will be on hand to introduce his work.
Free and open to the public
