Computational and systems biologist Aviv Regev to give Max Birnstiel Lecture
The IMP - Research Institute of Molecular Pathology - cordially invites to the talk:
“Reconstructing Intra- and Inter-Cellular Circuits with Single Cell Genomics” by Aviv Regev of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University.
The talk will be held in the frame of the IMP’s Max Birnstiel Lecture series.
Date: Wednesday, 24 May 2017, 11.00 a.m.
Venue: IMP Lecture Hall, Campus-Vienna-Biocenter 1, 1030 Vienna
Hosted by Alexander Stark
Aviv Regev and her lab at the Broad Institute study biological circuits, gene regulation, and evolution. Lab members pursue multi-disciplinary projects that aim to determine how complex molecular circuits function and evolve in response to genetic and environmental changes, cellular differentiation, evolution, and disease.
Aviv Regev is associate professor of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Department of Biology; and a core member, chair of the faculty and co-director of the cell-circuits program of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard University. She was an HHMI early career scientist from 2009 to 2014.

About the Max Birnstiel Lectures
The Max Birnstiel Lectures are a special series of seminars at the Research Institute of Molecular Pathology (IMP) in Vienna and represent the highest award that the IMP can give to outside scientists. They are named after the founding director of the institute, Max L. Birnstiel, who passed away in 2014. Each year, five to six scientists are invited to deliver one of these lectures, among them a number of Nobel Prize laureates. The Max Birnstiel Lectures attract considerable attention on campus and within the wider scientific community and invariably draw a large audience to the IMP.
