Hosted by the Section of Neurobiology
and the School of Biological Sciences


"From Peppers to Pit Vipers:

Natural Products As Probes

of the Pain Pathway."


David Julius

David Julius, PhD
Professor and Chair
Department of Physiology
University of California
San Francisco

Location: ACES 2.302

Date: May 6, 2013

Time: 4:00 pm

Host: Dr. Richard Aldrich

The Lorene Morrow Kelley Distinguished Lecture Series welcomes David Julius, Ph.D., delivering his talk, “From Peppers to Pit Vipers: Natural Products As Probes of the Pain Pathway.” Dr. Julius is the Chair of the Department of Physiology at the University of California, San Francisco. His research focuses on the molecular biology of sensory transduction and neurotransmitter action in the mammalian nervous system. His goal is to understand the molecular basis of somatosensation - the process whereby we experience touch and temperature - with an emphasis on identifying molecules that detect noxious (pain-producing) stimuli. He is also interested in understanding how somatosensation is altered in response to tissue or nerve injury.

The Lorene Morrow Kelley Lectureship was established with gifts by Lorene Kelley Morrow to honor her sister, Marie Betzner Morrow, who at the time of her death in 1971 was an associate professor of Microbiology at The University of Texas at Austin.

A reception will follow the talk in the ACES Connector Lobby.

For those who cannot attend the seminar, it will be webcast live (and be available for replay afterwards) here.
