For this week's Science Colloquium, we welcome David Yule, a professor in the Department of Pharmacology and Physiology at the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), for a talk entitled, "Calcium: More Than Just Bones and Teeth." At the URMC, he studies intracellular calcium signaling in the liver, pancreas, salivary glands and various cells in the blood, and how increases in intracellular calcium are fundamentally important for diverse processes including secretion of digestive enzymes and fluid, glucose metabolism together with cellular growth and differentiation.
Science Colloquium takes place 12:25 to 1:20 p.m. in Stratton Hall 209, the Hostetter Lecture Hall. This event is free and open to the public.
