Shilong and Zheng presented our recent study on the mechanosensitive ion channel Piezo1

Shilong presented his recent study on how membrane curvature affects the cellular distribution of Piezo1 at the Penn Muscle Institute Annual Symposium (see below)…and the poster was popular 🙂

Last month, Zheng visited and talked at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institute and the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (along with Weil Cornell Medicine), lots of interesting discussions on cell membranes and mechanosensation! Thanks to Shigeki Watanabe and Philipp Niethammer for the invitations!

Zheng will present this at the American Society for Cell Biology meeting in DC.

Shilong discussing his Piezo1 study with Paul Janmey! Before this, Paul asked Zheng: “Did you see this interesting poster about Piezo1?”
These tiny structures look really cool!
