Rm H445A, 40 Ruskin St. Ottawa, Ontario, Canada E-mail Nationality: CanadianEMBL information Postdoctoral Fellow Zerial Group Cell Biology and Biophysics From 1996 to 2000 Biography Hide biographyBiography: Heidi McBride joined the Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine as a Principle Investigator in the Lipoprotein and Atherosclerosis Group at the Heart Institute in September, 2000, following a 4 year post-doc at the European Molecular Biology Laboratories (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. Her undergraduate degree was obtained in the department of Biochemistry at McGill University in Montreal, where she also obtained her Ph.D in Biochemistry with Dr. Gordon Shore. There she uncovered novel principles in mitochondrial protein biogenesis, with the identification of new transport signals and investigated how mitochondrial receptor proteins recognize the correct signal sequences for entry into the organelle. From there she moved to Heidelberg to work with Dr. Marino Zerial studying the function of Rab GTPases and the molecular mechanisms that govern vesicular traffic within the early endosome. Specifically, she uncovered molecular links between the Rab5 effectors and components of the SNARE fusion machinery. These findings demonstrated that Rab effectors form dynamic oligomeric complexes after recruitment to the endosomal membrane whose assembly and disassembly is regulated by the SNARE chaperones, NSF and SNAP. Transient interactions between the Rab5 effector EEA1 and Syntaxin 13 temporally couple vesicle tethering with activation of the SNARE complexes to drive bilayer fusion. Armed with the experience in how to approach complex problems in cell biology, she now returns her focus to the to investigation of mitochondrial dynamics, including fission, fusion and communication mechanisms with other organelles within the cell. Heidi was born in Pembroke, Ontario and raised on a farm in Westmeath, Ontario, Canada.
