Geyer and Wallrath publish in Developmental Cell

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

Pam Geyer and Lori Wallrath have a new paper in the June issue of Developmental Cell, entitled “The Drosophila Nuclear Lamina Protein Otefin is Required for Germline Stem Cell Survival.” The article includes Lacy Barton (current graduate student with Pam Geyer) and Belinda Pinto (2009 PhD with Pam Geyer) as co-first authors, and is available online.

Adrian Elcock featured at ASCB Meeting and in Nature

Saturday, December 12th, 2009

At last week’s 49th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Cell Biology Meeting in San Diego, a number of Iowa Biochemists presented posters. ¬†In addition, Pamela Geyer, Belinda Pinto & Lori Wallrath presented “Integrity of the Nuclear Lamina is Required for Germline Stem Cell Homeostasis,” while Adrian Elcock presented “Molecular Modeling of the Bacterial Cytoplasm” in oral sessions. ¬†Elcock’s simulations and a graphic from his work were also covered in Nature.

Dr. Belinda Pinto

Wednesday, August 26th, 2009

Congratulations are due to our newest PhD, Belinda Pinto. Belinda defended her degree in Molecular and Cellular Biology with Professor Pamela Geyer on Understanding the Role of LEM Proteins in Drosophila Development. Belinda’s work identified phenotypes reminiscent of human laminopathies, suggesting that studies in Drosophila will provide insights into lamina dysfunction associated with disease.
