主讲人简介/Biography:

Maofu Liao, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Cell Biology at Harvard Medical School. He received his Ph.D. from Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 2006, performed postdoctoral research at University of California, San Francisco, and joined the faculty in the Department of Cell Biology of Harvard Medical School in 2014.


讲座摘要/Abstract:

Research in the Liao Lab focuses on understanding the structure and function of membrane proteins and DNA/RNA-protein complexes. The major techniques include single-particle cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) and a variety of biochemical assays. The Liao lab is particularly interested in revealing the mechanism of how proteins sense, move, and convert specific lipid molecules. This is achieved by obtaining high-resolution structures of lipid-interacting proteins, and by studying the conformational dynamics of membrane proteins in lipid bilayer environment.
