“The RIO kinases: Structure, Function and Inhibition”
Please join us in welcoming the Anderson Freemen Guest Lecturer, Dr. Nicole LaRonde, Associate Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Maryland.
Dr. LaRonde’s laboratory is focused on the study of molecules required for the synthesis of new ribosomes. A proliferating cell devotes 75% of its energy towards making these machines for protein synthesis. In the process of assembly of this large complex of RNA and proteins, an estimated 400 ribosome processing factors are utilized in humans. Although many of these proteins and protein-RNA complexes have been identified, for several of them their exact function in the process remains unknown. They are interested in determining the molecular details of how these macromolecules function in eukaryotic organisms.
The lab is currently studying the structural biology of the RIO kinases, a group of ancient atypical serine protein kinases, and Nep1, a putative RNA methyl transferase. These molecules are essential for the processing of the small ribosomal, or 40S, subunit. The role of these molecules in the synthesis of ribosomes is still unclear, but armed with X-ray crystal structures we are probing the interactions between these molecules and the rRNA, as well as with other molecules involved in the process. Our work thus far has elucidated how the RIO kinases interact with ATP and the pre-mature small subunit of the ribosome, and how Nep1 interacts with RNA. Our current work involved using these structures to guide questions in biochemical and biological contexts.
Come meet a representative from the Dartmouth Institute for Health Policy & Clinical Practice. You’ll have an opportunity to learn about their unique MPH, MS, and PhD programs. Learn what makes for a competitive candidate and what careers graduates of the Dartmouth Institute go on to do. Feel free to grab your lunch from the dining hall and enjoy a casual information session and Q and A in the CCI Library.

Biomedical research is the broad area of science that looks for ways to prevent and treat diseases that cause illness and death in people and in animals. This general field of research includes many areas of both the life and physical sciences. Utilizing biotechnology techniques, biomedical researchers study biological processes and diseases with the ultimate goal of developing effective treatments and cures. Biomedical research is an evolutionary process requiring careful experimentation by many scientists, including biologists and chemists. Discovery of new medicines and therapies requires careful scientific experimentation, development, and evaluation. -New Jersey Association for Biomedical Research
If you want to see if biomedical research is a possible career path for you, our friends at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center have shared a resource they developed, which is a catalog of biomedical research internships offered nationwide for high school, undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, graduate, and first-year medical students. You can check it out online here.
