Michael Yu: Role of Protein Arginine Methylation in the Function of Pre-mRNA Splicing Factor Prp19

Dr. Yu’s research examines the impact of such modification on proteins that participate in the process of pre-mRNA splicing, which is a critical mechanism that controls how gene are expressed in an organism. Dr. Michael C. Yu is Associate Professor of Biological Sciences at the State University of New York – Buffalo. As a Fulbright Senior Scholar at Institute of Molecular Biology at Academia Sinica, he is investigating the role of protein arginine methylation in the control of pre-mRNA splicing.

Laurie Battle: Mathematical Modeling in Ecology

Laurie Battle is a professor of mathematics at Montana Tech specializing in mathematical modeling. She is a Fulbright Senior Scholar at National Chung Hsin University in Taichung, where she researches endangered Formosan landlocked salmon and teaches graduate courses on different modeling techniques. In 2014-2015 Dr. Battle were using simulation modeling to predict the effect of dam removal, a strategy for habitat restoration, on the abundance of salmon in the Chichiawan basin.
