Single-molecule microscopy of GPCR signalling

Friday 26 June 2020 (13:00-14:00)

James Durrant

Dr Zsombor Korszegi will give a talk that looks at how G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) behave and signal in the plasma membrane in living cells. GPCRs mediate the effects of numerous hormones and neurotransmitters and are implicated in metabolic, cardiovascular, and neurological diseases; and these receptors are also major pharmacological targets.

Zsombor completed a PhD in neuroscience at the University of Otago in New Zealand with a focus on neuroendocrinology. He’s worked as a postdoc at Kyoto University, Japan, learning single-molecule microscopy before moving to the University of Bristol to work in molecular neuroscience. He joined the UoB to work on GPCR signaling in the Calebiro lab.

The Zoom details can be found on the IMSR Seminar Series intranet page.


Unfortunately this talk is only open to staff and students at the University of Birmingham. If you wish to be added to the mailing list for any future public seminars please email James Durrant
