Event description
Genetics & Cell Bio SuperGroup - Dr. Liron David (HMS), "Role of Piezo Mechanosensory Channels in Cell Cycle Regulation"

About this event

In the talk, Dr. David will present her work on Piezo proteins, the ion channels mediating mechanosensory transduction in mammalian cells, and how they connect to cell cycle regulation.


Dr. Liron David is a postdoctoral reserach in Professor Wu Hao's lab at Harvard Medical School. In her research, Dr. David studies the CARMA1-BCL10-MALT1(CBM) complex, the central mediator of T cell receptor and B cell receptor-induced NF-κB activation in lymphocytes.

Dr. David did her undergraduate studies in the Technion, and later joined the lab of Professor Noam Adir for her graduate studies, where she studied the structure of the phycobilisome, the light-harvesting antenna in cyanobacteria and red algae. Dr. David is a Cancer Research Institute postdoctoral researcher.


The SuperGroups are medium-size (15-30 participitants) virtual meetings, where a postdoctoral reseracher presents their recent findings, in a 40-45 minute talk. The meeting is informal, not recorded, and includes an active discussion during the talk about the results and their interpetation (similar to a lab meeting). We encourage trainees and PIs to attend. PIs from Israel are invited to the meeting, in order to facilitate interactions with faculty members in Israel, increase collaborations, and better prepare scientists abroad towards their return to faculty positions in Israel.

Following the talk, there will be an organic networking session between the participitants.
