Professor Angela Dulhunty, Department of Molecular Bioscience, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, ANU.
The lecture will discuss how the muscle machine is controlled in the human body and how a loss of control due to minute changes in one or two proteins can lead to skeletal myopathy and heart attack. These proteins also contribute to brain function, and the same changes in the proteins can lead to neurological disorders.
Professor Angela Dulhunty is Head of the Muscle Research Group in the Department of Molecular Bioscience, The John Curtin School of Medical Research, at the Australian National University, Canberra.
Refreshments to follow in the foyer after the seminar.
