Invitation for the online lecture of Iva Tolić, PhD
New talk from the FEBS Junior Sections:
“Mechanobiology of mitosis and its role in mitotic fidelity” by Iva Tolić, Ruđer Bošković Institute, Croatia, September 8, 7PM (CEST)
On September 8, at 7PM (CEST) the young researchers of the FEBS Junior Sections present their ninth online talk of 2022. This one is coordinated by the Junior Section of the Croatian Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, HDBMB-YSF. It will be an academic talk from Dr. Iva Tolić, Ruđer Bošković Institute, Croatia titled “Mechanobiology of mitosis and its role in mitotic fidelity”.
Are all chromosomes equal during mitosis? Do they all segregate with the same accuracy? Does it matter where they come from? I will discuss these topics and show how the chromosomes located behind the spindle pole reach the spindle midplane and how this unfavorable starting position puts them at risk of mis-segregation. These biased segregation errors may contribute to the distinct aneuploid karyotypes observed in cancers and during embryonic development.
