RVZ Guest Speaker: Prof. Meytal Landau
"Functional Protein Fibrils in Infectious and Aggregation Diseases"
|Date:||12/05/2019, 5:00 PM - 6:00 PM|
|Location:||Medizin, Geb. D15, 1.002-004|
|Speaker:||Prof. Meytal Landau|
Prof. Meytal Landau from Technion Israel Institute of Technology will be our guest at the RVZ.
"The Landau lab is fascinated about the structural and functional diversity of microbial functional amyloids. Amyloids are proteins that self-assemble into highly ordered fibrils that are mostly known for their involvement in neurodegenerative diseases, yet numerous amyloids are functional and participate in dedicated physiological activities, for example as virulence determinants in microbes, thereby serving as important drug targets."

Invited by Prof. Dr. Hermann Schindelin.
Everybody is welcome to attend.
