Rachel Price is a fourth year Ph.D. candidate in the Teves Lab at the University of British Columbia. She started in the Teves Lab in 2019 after completing a Bachelor of Arts in Biochemistry, Biophysics, and Molecular Biology at Whitman College in Walla Walla, Washington. Her current research project examines transcription factor activity during mitosis in mouse embryonic stem cells using a combination of genomics, single molecule live-cell imaging, and gene editing. For this project, she received a Dragon’s Den award from the BC Regenerative Medicine Network in 2021.

Talk title: Distinct modes of heat shock transcription factor interactions with mitotic chromosomes

Dr. Sheila Teves is an Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Canada Research Chair Tier 2 in Mechanisms of Gene Regulation at the University of British Columbia. She received her PhD at the University of Washington in Seattle, applying genomics-based approaches to study nucleosome dynamics in transcription regulation. For her postdoctoral work at the University of California, Berkeley, she studied how transcription programs are maintained and regulated during the cell cycle, using genomics and super resolution single molecule imaging. In July 2018, she started her own group at the University of British Columbia, combining diverse techniques such as genomics and single molecule imaging to address basic biological questions on transcription regulation, chromatin biology, and cell identity.

Talk title: Transcriptional mechanisms in mouse embryonic stem cells
