报告人简介:

Dr. Clare M. Waterman is a cell biologist who has made seminal contributions to understanding the role of the cytoskeleton in cell migration. Her past work consists of novel findings related to the development of experimental approaches, the cytoskeletal elements of a cell, including microtubules and actin, and the extracellular matrix. She pioneered the invention and application of novel quantitative and super-resolution light microscopy methods, and utilized these tools to reveal the architectural blueprint and dynamics of protein-based nano-machines that self-assemble in cells to generate, organize, and transmit the forces that drive cell movement, and she defined molecular pathways governing the orchestration of these protein machines in space and time. This unique and innovative body of work constitutes a major advance in knowledge of the molecular and biophysical basis of cell movement. Dr. Waterman has received numerous awards and honours, including the Sackler International prize in Biophysics, the NIH Director’s Pioneer Award, and the Arthur S. Flemming Award for Public Service.
