The Department of Molecular Physiology & Biophysics at the University of Vermont is seeking to recruit a Cell Biologist/Biophysicist at the Assistant Professor level on the Tenure-Track, although Associate and Full Professor candidates will be considered. The Department has significant strength in protein structure and function with emphasis on motor and cytoskeletal proteins. The ideal… Continue reading Faculty Search: Cell Biologist/Biophysicist at the Assistant Professor level – Tenure pathway
Dr. Heidi Malaby (postdoc in Jason Stumpff’s lab) and her husband, Dr. Andrew Malaby (postdoc in Sylvie Doublie’s lab), organized an Outreach Project for Burlington area high school students recently. For more info, see write-up: https://teensciencecafe.org/cool-cafes/proteins/
Andrew Lombardo is highlighted in the January 2016 Biophysical Society Newsletter “Student Center” on page 13. The Student Center is a new feature in the newsletter where students share how they decided to enter the field of biophysics.

In a study released February 20, 2015 in the inaugural issue of the journal Science Advances, molecular physiologists from the University of Vermont’s Cardiovascular Research Institute David Warshaw, Ph.D., Michael Previs, Ph.D., and colleagues discovered that a tiny piece of the engine known as myosin-binding protein C (cMyBP-C) is key to maintaining its highly precise… Continue reading Previs & Warshaw’s Study Shows Heart’s Contractions Rely on Critical Protein for Efficient Function
Andrew Lombardo, a graduate student in, Dr. David Warshaw’s Laboratory, presents his research at a platform session talk at the 59th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting in Baltimore MD. Andrew’s research examines the transport of synthetic intracellular cargo by teams Myosin V motors in 3 dimensions. (Click to enlarge image)
Michael Previs, Assistant Professor of Molecular Physiology and Biophysics, presents his research at the 59th Annual Biophysical Society Meeting in Baltimore, MD. Mike’s talk highlighted how myosin-binding protein C’s localization with the heart improves its contractile performance. His findings were published in the first issue of Science Advances the following week (http://advances.sciencemag.org/content/1/1/e1400205).
