Biochemist Janis Lochner presents at Gordon Research Conference

August 08, 2008

Janis Lochner, Dr. Robert B. Pamplin, Jr., professor of science:

In July, Lochner, a professor of biochemistry and molecular biology, gave an invited talk  at the Gordon Research Conference on Proprotein Processing Trafficking and Secretion, hosted at Colby-Sawyer College in New London, New Hampshire. The Gordon Research Conferences are a series of international scientific conferences that have a 75-year history and “provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of frontier research in the biological, chemical, and physical sciences, and their related technologies.”

Lochner’s presentation, titled “Neuromodulators Associated with Synaptic Plasticity are Copackaged and Cotransported to Synaptic Sites in Hippocampal Neurons,” was part of a series emphasizing innovative and interdisciplinary research in the cellular and molecular events of the secretory pathway.
