      Item Seminar - Dr. John Tower, University of Southern California
        Dr. John Tower from the University of Southern California will present a seminar on "Sequence-specific DNA replication origin and replicator elements in the Drosophila chorion gene locus". Time: Thursday, March 8th, 2 p.m. Location: Building 32T, conference room. For more information, or to schedule a meeting with the speaker, please contact Mirit Aladjem at 301-435-2848
      Item The Cell Cycle - symposium in the NIH research festival
        Chaired by: Mary Lilly (NICHD) and Orna Cohen-Fix (NIDDK) The regulation of proliferation and growth is fundamental to the life cycle of all organisms. Research over the past two decades has revealed tremendous evolutionary conservation in the molecular mechanisms that govern cell cycle progression. This session will focus on recent progress in understanding the regulation of various cell cycle processes including DNA replication, mitotic progression and cell division. In addition, we will discuss how components of the cell cycle machinery can serve as targets for cancer therapy. For speakers and titles, see seminar list
