Cargo transport by dynein/dynactin

Friday 16 September 2022 11:00 - 12:00 Piet Borst Auditorium Seminar

Andrew Carter
MRC Lab of Molecular Biology, Cambridge, UK

Andrew Carter studied Biochemistry at Oxford University.  He obtained PhD with Dr Venki Ramakrishnan at the MRC Lab of Molecular Biology (LMB), working on how antibiotics bind the ribosome.  He was part of the team, which contributed to Venki’s 2009 Nobel Prize.  In 2003, Andrew joined the lab of Prof Ron Vale at UCSF to work on dynein.  He set up his own lab, in the LMB Structural Studies division in 2010 where he and his team have used X-ray crystallography, cryo-EM and many other approaches to understand how cytoplasmic dynein and its cofactor dynactin select and transport cargos. Andrew is a fellow of Clare College, a Wellcome Investigator and a member of EMBO.
