Dr. Cynthia Wolberger will present. The tile of her talk is “Now you see it,now you don’t: Using the PDB to assess structures.”

Cynthia Wolberger is a Professor of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry and has on the Johns Hopkinsfaculty for 26 years. The current focus of her research is on the mechanismsunderlying regulation of transcription and ubiquitin signaling. She is an x-raycrystallographer by training and, like everyone else, is taking the plunge intocryo-EM. Dr. Wolberger currently chairs the Advisory Committee of the RCSBProtein Data Bank (PDB).
