Webinar: Invasive Mussel Genomics: Innovations for Control Methods

March 8 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Recorded: March 8, 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. Eastern Time

This webinar is part of a miniseries on the genomics of invasive mussels hosted by the Invasive Mussel Collaborative. Part one of the miniseries covers the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s prize competition “Eradication of Invasive Mussels in Open Water.” The first prize awarded in this competition proposed a novel genetic modification-based method for control.

Presenters:

  • Sherri Pucherelli, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation
    • Sherri is a biologist and invasive species research coordinator with the Bureau of Reclamation in the Department of the Interior. Her research has focused on invasive mussel control at hydropower facilities and mussel monitoring.
  • Steve Suhr and Marie-Claude Senut, Biomilab, LLC
    • Steve Suhr obtained his BA degrees at the University of Kansas and his Ph.D in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Northwestern University. He has been a research fellow in the laboratory of Dr. Fred Gage at the Salk Institute, the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Goldman at the University of Michigan, and Dr. Jose Cibelli at Michigan State University. He was a research assistant professor in the Dept. of Animal Science at Michigan State and continues at MSU as adjunct faculty.Marie-Claude Senut earned her PhD in Molecular and Cellular Developmental Biology at the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie and subsequently held a tenured research position in the laboratory of Dr. Jean-Marie Besson in Paris, France. She assumed research associate positions in the laboratory or Dr. Fred Gage at the Salk Institute, the laboratory of Dr. Daniel Goldman at the University of Michigan, the laboratories of Drs. Arshad Majid and Jose Cibelli at Michigan State University and the laboratory of Dr. Douglas Ruden at Wayne State University. She currently is MSU adjunct faculty in the Dept. of Animal Science.

      Drs. Suhr and Senut left academia in 2014 to found Biomilab LLC, a hybrid business that combines the fee-for-service function of a Contract Research Organization (CRO) with in-house R&D aimed at discovering and developing new innovative research tools, reagents, and methods to advance the biosciences, medicine, and AgBio.
