2023 LEAP!

Riddick Hearth

The LEAP! workshop invites high school students to investigate these questions inside the labs of working scientists at NC State.

The 2023 event will be held on Monday, Aug 14. You can sign up via this link at The Science House.

Title: Structural and functional diversity of calcium-triggered contractile proteins in ciliates   Abstract: Ciliated protozoa employ conventional ATP-powered cytoskeletal motors, such as myosins, dyneins, and kinesins, for motility and intracellular transport. But ciliates also use novel cytoskeletal motors that do not require ATP to generate force. These calcium-triggered motors drive contractile processes, some of which are…

First Colloquium

Joint us for the introduction of new Graduate Students and the announcement of the Philbrick Outstanding Physics RA and TA winners

Physics Colloquium: Peter Levai

Title:  How does proton-proton collision look like for a high energy nuclear physicist? Abstract:  The basic aim of colliding heavy ions at ultra relativistic energies is to produce the new state of matter, quark-gluon plasma. We expect the appearance of this special material to consist of quarks, antiquarks and gluons, because protons and neutrons are…

Title: The History of Cosmic Ecosystems: Hidden Drivers of Galaxy Evolution Abstract: In the last two decades, our understanding of how galaxies form and evolved have matured dramatically. The latest numerical simulations successfully reproduce both the stellar content of galaxies and their large scale statistical properties. However, these models still fail to match the observed…

Title: Genome Organization from the Ground Up -- Deciphering Molecular Mechanisms for Chromatin Organization Abstract: Chromatin structure tightly regulates gene expression and epigenetic processes. The nuclear environment is complex, featuring tension exerted by force-generating proteins and molecular crowding modulated by different ionic concentrations. Understanding the impact of these factors on chromatin structure is crucial for elucidating…
