The course will emphasize basic principles in pharmacokinetics. Presentations will be delivered via lectures and multiple small-group workshops. For more details and registration information, see Pharmacokinetics for Pharmaceutical Scientists.

Burlingame and Gross labs shed light on braking mechanisms in cellular signaling

How do cells that must respond rapidly and robustly to changes in the environment subsequently modulate that response so such elevated activity doesn’t prove harmful? Put another way: How do cells put the brakes on their response to external signaling in order to re-stabilize themselves?
