Title:  The Hidden Secrets of Small Genes
Description:  NICHD’s Associate Scientific Director Dr. Gisela Storz will give the 2017 lecture in the Anita B. Roberts Lecture Series: Distinguished Women Scientists at NIH, sponsored by the NIH Women Scientist Advisors Committee. Her talk, “The hidden secrets of small genes” will be held Tuesday, May 16 at 1 p.m. in Lipsett Amphitheater, Bldg. 10. This series highlight outstanding research achievements of women scientists in the Intramural Research Program at NIH.

Dr. Storz’s research focuses on identification and characterization of small and often overlooked classes of biological molecules. This includes identification and characterization of regulatory RNAs in E. coli and proteins of less than 50 amino acids.

Dr. Storz is a Fellow of the American Academy of Microbiology, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and National Academy of Sciences, and received the American Society for Microbiology Eli Lilly Award in 2000. Mentoring is very important to Dr. Storz, and she has received both the Distinguished Mentor Award presented by Postbaccalaureate Trainees and the Outstanding Mentor Award presented by the Graduate Student Trainees.

The seminar series is dedicated to the memory of Dr. Anita B. Roberts, former chief of NCI’s Laboratory of Cell Regula¬tion and Carcinogenesis from 1995 to 2006. Prior to her death in May 2006, she spent 30 years at NIH as a research leader. The lecture is open to all and will be followed by a reception to talk with Dr. Storz about career issues for women in science. Individuals with dis¬abilities who need reasonable accommodations to participate should contact Margaret McBur¬ney at 301-496-1921 and/or Federal Relay, 1-800-877-8339, five days before the lecture.
