James P. Holland Memorial Lecture
"Grabbing the Cat by the Tail: Discrete Steps by a DNA Packaging Motor and the Inter-Subunit Coordination in a Ring-ATPase"
Carlos Bustamante, Professor of Molecular & Cell Biology, Physics, and Chemistry at the University of California, Berkeley, will give the eleventh James P. Holland Memorial Lecture: "Grabbing the Cat by the Tail: Discrete Steps by a DNA Packaging Motor and the Inter-Subunit Coordination in a Ring-ATPase" on Monday, October 4, 2010, at 4:00 p.m. in Myers Hall 130 on the IU Bloomington campus.
The Bustamante lab uses novel techniques such as single-molecule manipulation and fluorescence microscopy to investigate the structure and function of proteins and nucleic acids and their complexes. Professor Bustamante directs the Advanced Microscopies Department at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and is a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator.

The Holland Lectures honor the memory of Professor James P. Holland, who worked tirelessly to address the needs of minority students on this campus. Holland created Biology's summer enrichment program, which brings Indiana minority high school students to campus to attend science lectures and participate in hands-on laboratories designed to spark their interest in science and provide a taste of the college experience. At the university-level, Holland and the late Herman C. Hudson joined forces to found the Minority Achievers Program (MAP) and the Mathematics and Science Scholarship Program (MASS). In 2003, the programs were renamed to honor the efforts of these two men and are now known as the Herman C. Hudson and James P. Holland Scholars Program.
The Department of Biology faculty and staff honored their colleague by creating the James P. Holland Graduate Fellowship in Biology. The fellowship is presented to a first-year Ph.D. student from a group that is under-represented in the life sciences.
