About UConn Structural Biology
The UConn Partnership for Excellence in Structural Biology brings together faculty, staff, and students to form an interactive research and training environment. We have active research programs in the structural analysis of macromolecular assemblies and membrane proteins, computational and experimental methods development, computational modeling, and analysis. Our major facilities include NMR, X-ray crystallography, Proteomics & Metabolomics core facilities as well as the National Center for Analytical Ultracentrifugation. The partnership supports collaborative research projects, interdepartmental graduate training and an annual symposium (NESS).

MCB Seminar Series: Dr. Tara McAllister 3:30pm
Tuesday, September 26th, 2023
03:30 PM - 04:30 PM
Dr. Tara McAllister, Research Fellow, Victoria University of Wellington, Wellington, New Zealand
Host: Dr. Kat Milligan-McClellan
“Formidable Phormidium: toxic cyanobacteria in New Zealand rivers”
Summary: In this seminar, Dr McAllister will explore the physicochemical factors that lead to toxic benthic cyanobacterial blooms in New Zealand rivers. She will present the findings of two experiments that collectively aimed to understand the effects of nutrients and velocity on Phormidium growth
Bio: Dr Tara McAllister (Te Aitanga a Māhaki) is an Indigenous scientist, interdisciplanary scholar and a mother. She is currently a Research Fellow at the School for Science in Society at Te Herenga Waka — Victoria University of Wellington in New Zealand. She holds a PhD in Water Resource Management from the University of Canterbury and has expertise spanning freshwater ecology and racism in higher education.
Publication: The rise of toxic benthic Phormidium proliferations: a review of their taxonomy, distribution, toxin content and factors regulating prevelance and increased severity.
