Jeremy G. Wideman Dalhousie University, Halifax, NS, Canada
Dr. Wideman is a postdoctoral fellow in evolutionary cell biology and philosophy of biology in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. He began his research career investigating the role of the ERMES (ER-Mitochondria Encounter Structure) complex in mitochondrial protein import in the filamentous fungus Neurospora crassa
. Since then he has focused on investigating the evolutionary diversity of membrane contact site complexes including ERMES and MICOS using a comparative genomic approach. He has recently began using single-cell genomics to gain cell biological insights into uncultured wild heterotrophic flagellates.
