Mechanisms of lipid quality control and ferroptosis

James Olzmann is an Associate Professor in the Departments of Molecular & Cell Biology and Nutritional Sciences & Toxicology at the University of California, Berkeley and an Investigator at the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub in San Francisco. Dr. Olzmann earned his B.S. in Biology at the University of Michigan and his Ph.D. in Neuroscience at Emory University. As a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University in Ron Kopito's lab he studied the physical and functional organization of the endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) pathway, a process that mediates the ubiquitin-dependent clearance of proteins from the early secretory pathway. Since 2013, Dr. Olzmann's research group at UC Berkeley has developed systems-level discovery approaches to uncover the cellular mechanisms that govern cellular lipid homeostasis, including the regulation of lipid droplets and ferroptosis. In this seminar, Dr. Olzmann will discuss recent advances in our understanding of cellular lipid quality control and ferroptosis.
