The Annual Sarratt Holiday Arts Festival is the place to find unique and hand crafted gifts and items for the holidays. The event is held in Sarratt Gallery and features the work of local artisans and delightful gifts from local businesses. Every yea, hundreds of people find just the right gifts for someone special on their list with items like hand made pottery, gifts from Thistle Farms, hand crafted jewelry, hand blown glass ornaments, specialty roasted coffees and hand made soaps from Humphreys Street, plus delicious breads from Soberdough and delightful chocolates from Bang Candy Co.
Talented Nashville based artisans joining us this year include Nancie Roark - Jewelry, Elizabeth Friend - pottery, Rachel Vassar - hand crocheted designs, Susan Moody - jewelry, David Heustess - pottery and scarves, and JoEl Logiudice - jewelry plus.
Join us daily from 10am - 6pm beginning November 26 for wonderful handmade gifts at affordable prices. You may even find something wonderful for yourself. The Festival runs Monday, November 26 through Friday December 7, 2018.

The Vanderbilt Institute of Chemical Biology (VICB) presents Dr. Georgios Skiniotis, Stanford: "CryoEM Insights Into GPCR acFvaFon and Signaling"
Recent technological breakthroughs have enabled single-particle electron cryo-microscopy (cryoEM) to achieve close to atomic resolution structures of macromolecular complexes. The methodology is now displaying its hidden potential, and has already become a principal choice of method for characterizing the structure of relatively large macromolecular assemblies including membrane receptors. GPCRs and their complexes have been challenging targets for cryo-EM analysis, both because of their dynamic nature and also due to their relatively small size that can limit accurate alignment for 3D reconstructions. Nevertheless, near atomic resolution cryoEM maps of GPCRs are now within reach, opening up unprecedented opportunities to uncover molecular mechanisms and facilitate drug discovery.
Here, I will give an overview our more recent cryo-EM work to obtain the structures of several pharmacologically important GPCR complexes.
