The NASA Astrobiology Program invites you to share and discover in a Seminar Series of its Research Coordination Network: Prebiotic Chemistry and Early Earth Environments (PCE3). The PCE3 Seminar Series is designed to highlight diverse origins of life research from all over the world, spark interdisciplinary discussion, and facilitate research connections among the PCE3 community. A primary goal of this series is to showcase the work of talented early career scientists in PCE3 sciences.

The series continues on Thursday, July 15th, from 1:00-2:30 pm (EST) and will be held every 3rd Thursday on a continuing basis. Shifts in the seminar hours will occur with notice later in the year for inclusion of participants in Europe/Australasia. Additionally, sessions will be recorded with the permission of the speakers and uploaded to the PCE3 YouTube Channel.

This session's speakers are Joshua Arriola and Hannah Rutledge, both graduate students at the University of California San Diego, with an introduction by Dr. Ulrich Muller, Associate Professor from the University of California, San Diego.

Joshua Arriola will present "Investigating the Role of Ribozymes in the RNA World".

Hannah Rutledge will present “On the Brink of Stability: Redox Dependent Conformational Changes of the Nitrogenase P-Cluster".

Please register at the link above. If the Zoom meeting reaches capacity, the seminar will be live-streamed to the PCE3 YouTube channel for concurrent viewing. And visit the PCE3 Seminar Series website for previous sessions. Join the PCE3 Slack here to continue discussion post-talks.
