The National Heart, Lung and Blood
Institute cordially invites you to attend this one day symposium to celebrate the career and scientific achievements of
Edward D. Korn. During Dr. Korn’s fifty years in the Institute, he has published over 300 articles principally on actin and myosin,
including the landmark discovery of myosin I. Dr. Korn’s enormous contributions to the NHLBI include the ten years he served
as its Scientific Director, during which time he was elected to the National Academy of Sciences. The symposium will feature twelve
internationally recognized scientists who will present their state of the art research on the mechanisms of actin assembly and the
functions of unconventional myosins.
There is no cost to attend the symposium, but participants are asked to register.
