GPMLS and BMC announce seminars given by Dr. Heinz Arnheiter, Scientist emeritus, NINDS Faculty, NIH (Bethesda, MD, USA) in August and September.

Heinz Arnheiter is scientist emeritus at the National Institutes of Health in the USA and the editor of the journal Pigment Cell and Melanoma Research. He is a Swiss national and holds an MD from the University of Zürich. He first worked as a research fellow at the Institute for Immunology and Virology in Zürich and in 1981 moved to the Laboratory of Molecular Genetics at the National Institure of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS), NIH. There, he was first a Research Fellow, then a Fogerty International Fellow, and in 1988 became Chief of the Viral Pathogenesis and in 1995 of the Mammalian Development section. In the early stages of his carreer he studied the relationship between host genes and viruses but then, upon a chance observation, his research changed from innate immunity to development. He is widely known as the “inventor” of MITF in the mouse. He will give lunch seminars on several topics that interest him (but where he is not an expert). He will also talk to students and postdocs about issues related to carreer development.

Lunch seminars to all at BMC, 12-13.
