Upcoming MCB Events
MCB Seminar Series: Dr. Binyam Mogessie 3:30pm
Tuesday, October 3rd, 2023
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM
Dr. Binyam Mogessie,
Assistant Professor of Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology, Yale
Assistant Professor of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences, Yale
Wellcome Trust and Royal Society Sir Henry Dale Fellow
Host: Barbara Mellone
“Emerging mechanisms of chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs”
Summary: Meiotic chromosome segregation generates fertilizable eggs from immature oocytes.
In this talk, I will discuss our recent advances in understanding new cytoskeletal processes that safeguard chromosome segregation in mammalian eggs.
About Dr. Mogessie: Binyam Mogessie is an Assistant Professor of Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology and of Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Reproductive Sciences at Yale University. Originally from Ethiopia, Binyam received his BSc in biochemistry and cell biology in 2007 from Jacobs University Bremen in Germany and his PhD in Cell Biology in 2011 from the University of London. Binyam carried out his postdoc research at the MRC-LMB in Cambridge, UK and the Max Planck Institute for Biophysical Chemistry in Germany where he discovered a function of the actin cytoskeleton in preventing aneuploidy in mammalian eggs. In 2018, Binyam established his independent research laboratory dedicated to mechanistic studies of female meiosis and reproductive longevity. Binyam recently moved his lab to Yale University where he is a Wellcome Trust and Royal Society Sir Henry Dale fellow and HFSP Young Investigator.

Accelerate UConn (NSF I-Corps) Application Deadline All Day
Monday, October 9th, 2023
Accelerate UConn is UConn’s National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovation Corps (I-Corps) Site and its mission is to catalyze the transition of new scientific discoveries and capabilities from the lab to the marketplace. Participating teams will receive an introduction to the most critical elements of the I-Corps Curriculum and Lean Launchpad methodology. Over the course of this virtual 5-week program, teams will learn how to determine the market opportunity for their product or technology.
Participants will learn how to:
- Develop new ways to communicate the value of their product or technology
- Understand the structure of the market they are entering
- Develop strategies for generating demand for their product or technology
- Identify next steps needed to launch their venture
- Identify customers most likely to bring first revenue
Teams will receive:
- 5 weeks of training on the Business Model Canvas and Customer Discovery Process
- Coaching from industry experts and access to next step resources
- $2,000 to support customer discovery and development of minimum viable product
- Assistance identifying additional team members
Applications for the Fall 2023 cohort will close on Monday, October 9, 2023 at 11:59 p.m.
