7:30 PM - 9:00 PM

Off Campus

On Feb. 7 at 7:30 p.m. at The Half Penny, Willamette University’s “Distilled” series will feature a talk from David Altman, a physics professor who will present “Distilled: Moving in a Microscopic Hurricane.” Altman studies myosin, a motor protein. Responsible for every conscious and unconscious flex of our muscles, it beats our hearts. “I’m fascinated by this microscopic engine,” says Altman. “Like an intracellular Uber, myosin transports and organizes components within the cell.” It’s not an easy job. Molecules crash into each other inside the violent, roiling confines of the cell. “The intracellular environment is less like your morning commute on the interstate and more like driving a taxi through a crowded city center during a hurricane,” says Altman. At the pub talk, Altman will describe how a cell’s minuscule engines achieve this remarkable feat. A graduate of the University of Chicago and Stanford University, Altman collaborates with Willamette students and other scientists to study myosin. If not in his lab or in Willamette’s physics hearth, Altman is busy being a dad, knitter and board gamer. Just south of Madrona at 3743 Commercial St. S., The Half Penny is open to all ages until 9 p.m. Mailing List Email pub-talks@willamette.edu to join the Distilled mailing list for monthly alerts about upcoming talks, and follow Distilled on Facebook for trivia hints and more at facebook.com/distilledpubtalks.
