The New Surveillance Society: Big Brother Grows Up

Wed, 04/02/2014 - 4:19pm
Wednesday, April 2, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
Philosophy Talk returns to OSU with special guest Christopher McKnight Nichols.   Recent revelations confirm what many already suspected - not only is Big Brother watching you, he is also potentially reading your emails, listening to your phone calls, mapping your personal networks, and tracking your every move. While many see whistleblowers as heroes, others see them as criminals who ought to be severely punished. So, how should we treat whistleblowers who break the law for moral or political ends? How do we adjudicate between national or corporate security and individual rights? And what kind of rights and responsibilities does a proactive citizenry have when confronted with injustices committed by the state? 

Nationally syndicated radio show Philosophy talk (http://www.philosophytalk.org/) returns to OSU (fourth time) for a live taping with special guest, history professor Christopher McKnight Nichols.

The show runs locally on OPB.

Weihong Qiu Seminar

Tue, 04/01/2014 - 4:17pm
Tuesday, April 1, 2014 4:00 AM - 5:00 AM

Microtubule motor proteins are mechanochemical enzymes that utilize the energy of ATP hydrolysis to move along the surface of filamentous structures called microtubules and to exert forces inside cells. There are two main classes of microtubule motor proteins: dynein and kinesin. Single molecule fluorescence microscopy has become an important tool for elucidating the mechanism of dynein and kinesin.  In this talk, I will discuss our two recent studies in which we used single molecule fluorescence microscopy to investigate the mechanisms of both dynein and kinesin. In our study of Kif21A, a neuronal kinesin-4 protein, we demonstrated that widetype Kif21A is autoinhibited due to the intramolecular interaction between its motor domain and a non-motor part, and that this autoinhibition is reduced by mutations in Kif21A causing a human eye movement disorder called congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles type 1. In the second study, we show that dynein is the only known cytoskeletal motor protein that uses both “hand-over-hand” and “inchworm” to move with discrete steps, and that dynein steps are governed by the intramolecular tension between its two motor domains.

Pistol Club

Tue, 04/01/2014 - 4:17pm
Tuesday, April 1, 2014 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM
If it is your first visit to Pistol Club this academic year, please bring $5 for the mandatory orientation and safety training and your OSU ID. Orientation and Safety training begins at 6:00PM (note there is a limit to the number of trainees per night for safety reasons and please be on time...or better yet early). For members who have been trained this academic year, the range generally opens about 7:00PM. We are located on the south-east corner of McAlexander Fieldhouse. We hang a sign that is visible when walking from the north on the Kerr Admin side. Please visit our website for important information about Pistol Club including a map to the range:

Dr. Weihong Tan Seminar

Mon, 03/31/2014 - 4:20pm
Monday, March 31, 2014 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM

A full understanding of the molecular basis of diseases depends on the development of molecular probes able to recognize disease targets of interest. Until very recently, such tools have been absent from the clinical practice of medicine. The newest molecular probe, and one that holds most promise, is a new class of designer nucleic acids, termed aptamers, which are single-stranded DNA/RNA able to recognize specific targets, such as single proteins and even small molecules. Recently, we applied a simple, fast and reproducible cell-based aptamer selection strategy called Cell-SELEX which uses whole, intact cells as the target for aptamer selection. This selection process then generates multiple aptamers for the specific recognition of biological cells, but without the need for prior knowledge about the signature of target cell-surface molecules. The selected aptamers have dissociation constants in the nanomolar to picomolar range. Thus far, we have selected aptamer probes for many different diseases, and used them to carry out studies at the vanguard of biomedical science, including ultrasensitive detection of tumors, molecular imaging, targeted drug delivery, and, most critically, cancer biomarker discovery. Taken together, these molecular level tools form a solid scientific platform from which to pursue advanced studies in molecular medicine. We will report our most recent progress in this exciting research area, especially the molecular elucidation of cancer biomarkers and targeted drug development.
