Galo Garcia (Reiter Lab) and Xiaoyu Shi show us how the ciliary gate is organized and how that goes wrong in disease.


2018 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences - Peter Walter, PhD

We are delighted to share the news that Peter Walter, PhD, professor and Howard Hughes Investigator in the School of Medicine Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, has received a 2018 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences. This award recognizes him for "elucidating the unfolded protein response, a cellular quality-control system that detects disease-causing unfolded proteins and directs cells to take corrective measures."


Yifan Cheng Elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Dr. Cheng, a UCSF faculty member since 2006, is a Professor of Biochemistry and Biophysics and an investigator of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. He is a world leader in the development of cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM), which combines high-resolution microscopy and powerful computational methods to unveil the three-dimensional structure of proteins in unprecedented detail. His technical innovations in cryoEM have allowed high-resolution views of protein complexes involved in a wide array of cell processes, from protein degradation to heat sensation. More...
