Speaker: Peter Baumann, Stowers Institute for Medical Research, Kansas City, USA
Peter Baumann is an investigator at the Stowers Institute for Medical Research in Kansas City and holds a Professor appointment in the Department of Molecular and Integrative Physiology at Kansas University medical School.  He was named a Howard Huges Medical Institute Early Career Scientist in 2009 and a Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator in 2013.  Also in 2013, PeterBaumann was named the Priscilla Wood Neaves Endowed Chair in the Biomedical Sciences.

His team found the S. pompe telomerase RNA subunit gene that had eluded him before. In studying the precursors to that subunit, they discovered an entirely new and unanticipated pathway for processing RNA.
