Event Description

Full Description:
Established in 1990, the Biochemistry Alumni Lecture brings together past and present students and staff of the Biochemistry discipline within UQ's School of Chemistry & Molecular Biosciences.

This year's lecture, Cryo-electron Microscopy of Helical Protein and Nucleoprotein Polymers: Insights into Evolutionary Divergence, will be presented by Professor Edward Egelman from the University of Virginia Medical School. 

About Professor Edward Egelman
Edward Egelman received his undergraduate degree in Physics, and then started his graduate work at Harvard in Experimental High Energy Physics. He changed fields to Biophysics, and received his PhD from Brandeis University in 1982.

He was a postdoctoral fellow at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK, and became an Assistant Professor at Yale University in 1984.

He moved to the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1989 as an Associate Professor, and became a full Professor there in 1993.

In 1999 he moved to the University of Virginia Medical School where he is currently the Harrison Distinguished Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics.

From 2007-2012 he was Editor-in-Chief of Biophysical Journal, he is a past President of the Biophysical Society, and is currently Chair of the Public Affairs Committee of the Biophysical Society.

He is a Fellow of both the American Academy of Microbiology and of the Biophysical Society, was Chair of the Three-Dimensional Electron Microscopy Gordon Research Conference in 2013, and has served as Chair of numerous NIH panels in the U.S.

He has authored more than 230 papers, most involving the use of electron microscopy to understand macromolecular assemblies, and was the overall editor for the nine volume book series Comprehensive Biophysics.

His current research focuses on the structure, function and evolution of protein and nucleoprotein polymers, spanning bacterial pili, archaeal and bacterial flagellar filaments, archaeal viruses, and actin.
