Biology Monday Seminar: "Dynamic Cytoskeletal Reorganization in the C. Elegans Reproductive System"

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.
