The date of this seminar has changed

Suzanne Pfeffer received the A.B. in Biochemistry from the University of California at Berkeley; she obtained the Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics for work on synaptic vesicle recycling with Reg Kelly at University of California San Francisco before joining Jim Rothman at Stanford for postdoctoral research studying membrane trafficking. She has been a Professor of Biochemistry at Stanford University since 1986, studying protein trafficking to the lysosome, and now focuses her research on the role pathogenic LRRK2 in Parkinson’s disease.
