●讲座主题：Organelles in Prokaryotes: from understanding towards bioengineering at the global scale
Prof. Luning Liu received his PhD in Microbiology in 2008 from Shandong University. He carried out a joint PhD project at the Leiden University, Netherlands (2005-2008), and then he worked as a postdoctoral fellow at Institute Curie, Paris (2008-2010), and a Marie Curie research fellow at Queen Mary University of London (2010-2012). He became a Principal Investigator at University of Liverpool in December 2012 and a Chair Professor in Microbial Bioenergetics and Bioengineering. He has been awarded a prestigeous Royal Society University Research Fellowship (10.2013-09.2021). His research focuses on the molecular basis of protein assembly and dynamics in biological membranes, light-harvesting, structure and physiological regulation of the photosynthetic machinery.
Biological organelles play essential roles in cellular reactions, such as photosynthesis, carbon fixation, nitration assimilation and human diseases, and thus have significant impact on global primary production and carbon cycle. There is increasing evidence that organelles are also widely present in the bacterial kingdom. In this seminar, Prof. Luning Liu will introduce recent research progress on the molecular mechanisms that govern the structures, self-assembly, and biogenesis of protein organelles and photosynthetic apparatus in photoautotrophic bacteria. They also harness the knowledge learnt in nature to synthetically engineer and reprogramme organelle modules to enhance cellular metabolism, bioenergy production, and crop production.
