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

A public conversation marking Constitution Day, "Targeted Killings, the Constitution, and You: U.S. Drone Policy and Citizens’ Rights,” will be held on Wed., Sept. 17, 2014, 7:30–9:30 pm in Emerson Suites, Campus Center.
Recent drone technology has several promising business and benign applications. But it also has some frightening ones -- such as targeting and killing people. The U.S. government claims “targeted killings” are necessary for national defense and fighting terrorism, yet many innocent civilians in several countries have been killed by drones. Outrage has grown about these deaths and about the fact that President Obama has claimed constitutional authority as commander in chief to use drones to kill U.S. citizens accused of potential or actual terrorist acts.
