Art and science set to collide at Toledo CellulART Sept. 14

This week The University of Toledo is hosting a one-day conference to celebrate and explore the creative side of cytoskeletal research.

Toledo CellulART, a regional meeting that brings together the art and scientific communities, will take place Friday, Sept. 14, in the UT Center for the Visual Arts, a building designed by world-renowned architect Frank Gehry on the Toledo Museum of Art Campus.

CellulART celebrates the link between art and science while promoting collaboration, interaction and discussion between cytoskeletal researchers.

This year the keynote talk will be given by Dr. Kenneth Yamada, National Institutes of Health Distinguished Investigator in the Cell Biology Division at the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research in Bethesda, Md. He will speak at 1 p.m. in the basement auditorium.

The meeting also features a scientist/artist talk by Dr. Edna Cukierman, co-leader of the Pancreas Research Interest Group at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia. Her event is at 5:30 p.m. in the basement auditorium.

Throughout the day, there will be oral and poster presentations by faculty members, researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students. The poster and art presentations are from 2 to 4 p.m. in the student lounge on the third floor.

In addition to presentations by scientists in the UT Department of Biological Sciences, the conference features researchers from the University of Michigan, Purdue University, University of Notre Dame and Case Western Reserve University.

The meeting is sponsored by the American Society for Cell Biology; Cytoskeleton Inc.; Fisher Scientific International Inc.; and by the UT offices of the President and the Provost; the UT College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics; and the UT Department of Biological Sciences.
