WHAT: University of Nebraska at Kearney Science Café
HOSTED BY: Sigma Xi The Scientific Research Society
TITLE: “Contemporary Biochemical Kinetic Modeling – Enzyme Kinetics to Systems Biology”
SPEAKER / PRESENTER: Michael Moxley, UNK assistant professor of chemistry, teaches general chemistry and biochemistry. His research is focused on the kinetic regulation of enzymes involved in glucose and fatty acid oxidation. He received his undergraduate and graduate training in biochemistry, with a focus in experimental enzymology, at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. From 2012-17 he did postdoctoral fellowships at the Medical College of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and University of Michigan-Ann Arbor.
TOPIC: The traditional views on how life uses biochemistry are continually being updated as new information and modern research techniques become available. Moxley will present his work on better understanding biological processes, including how kinetics, specifically how fast enzymes function, influences what happens in the body.
TIME: 5:30 p.m.
DATE: Monday, April 23
PLACE: The Loft, Cunningham’s Journal, 15 W. 23rd St., Kearney
CONTACT: Allen A. Thomas, assistant professor of chemistry, 308.865.8452, firstname.lastname@example.org
