How did a group of "ordinary" citizens find the courage to take on one of the most powerful institutions, run by one of the most powerful men, in the country? And how did they manage to break into FBI offices, cart off thousands of pages of documents, and vanish without a trace? And how did they get away with airing the bureau's dirty laundry and exposing its political spying? Further, how did they keep their identities secret from 1971 until this very year?

Find out tomorrow (Tues. Sept. 23) at 7:00 p.m. in Textor 103. There will be a screening of 1971, the film based on their gripping story, followed by a Q&A with Jeff Cohen, Park Center for Independent Media director and associate professor of journalism, who has written about the FBI, NSA, and government malfeasance.

Free and open to all. Bring a friend . . . or several.

Tuesday, September 16th, CNS 333 at 4:15 p.m. Alumnus Jason Diaz will be giving a presentation on:

"Phosphorylation as a key regulator of Merkel cell polyomavirus protein function."  

Merkel cell polyomavirus (MCV) was discovered in 2008 as a novel DNA virus associated with a very rare skin cancer, Merkel cell carcinoma.  Research efforts have focused on how this virus causes cancer, but much of its basic virology has yet to be explored.  The major viral protein, Large Tumor antigen (LT) is a multifunction protein that interacts with numerous cellular proteins to manipulate the cell for the virus’s advantage; additionally, LT is a key initiator of viral DNA replication.  These multiple activities must be tightly regulated to ensure a productive infectious cycle.  Using mass spectrometry, I uncovered three novel threonines that are phosphorylated during LT expression in cells; this talk will demonstrate how some of these modifications control LT’s ability to initiate viral replication.
