The Dynamics of Dynamin and Cancer Evolution – Professor Sandra Schmid, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center

Jun 15, 2018 | health and medicine

All cells need to transport vital biomolecules across membranes by packaging them into small membrane-bound containers called vesicles. Integral to this process is the large protein dynamin. In her insightful and pioneering research, Professor Sandra Schmid has begun to open the ‘black box’ on how changes in the activity of dynamin can impact cargo uptake to vesicles and the survival of cancer cells.
