Dr. Niels Fischer from the Max Planck Institute for Multidisciplinary Sciences in Göttingen visits our CRC for scientific exchange of advances in single-particle cryo-EM and will give a guest lecture about „Visualizing the dynamic machinery of translation initiation in humans“ in the Biocenter on March 9th, 2023 at 13:00.


Much looking forward to Dr. Katia Cosentino (Molecular Cell Biophysics, University of Osnabrück) and her talk on „Membrane pores in cell death: from pore assembly to structure by single-molecule approaches“. Guests are welcome to join the lecture on Feb 1st, 2023 at 13:15 in the Biocenter.


Happy to announce the first guest lecture of 2023: On Wednesday, Jan 18th at 13:00 c.t., Prof. Dr. Rose-John from Biochemistry Department of Christian Albrechts University Kiel will give a lecture (Biocenter, seminar room 0.15) on „Interleukin-6 and ADAM17: Proteolysis, Pathophysiology and Implications for Therapy of Autoimmune Disease“.


We are very delighted that Dr. Bonnie J. Murphy, principal investigator of project 15, has been granted a membership of the EMBO Young Investigator Programme. She is one of 24 life scientists who will join the EMBO Young Investigator network and receive financial and practical support for a period of four years. We compliment Bonnie on joining this programme for excellent group leaders.


We are excited to announce that Prof. Dr. Sabine Petry, Dept of Molecular Biology, Princeton University, will talk about „How to make microtubules and build the cytoskeleton“ on Thursday, 11/17/2022 at 11:30 am (s.t.) at the Goethe University Biozentrum, seminar room 0.15 (check Twitter news for the remote access).


In the frame of the seminar series of the CRC, we are happy to announce that Prof. Dr. Blanche Schwappach-Pignataro, Dean of the University Medical Center Hamburg, will visit us for a lecture. Her lecture „GETting to the Endoplasmic Reticulum – Hairpin proteins as non-canonical targeting clients of the ‚Guided Entry for Tail-anchored proteins‘ pathway“ will take place on Monday, 10/31/2022 at 11 am at the Goethe University Biozentrum (check notices for the lecture hall).


The CRC proudly welcomed its first guest lectures in the Biocenter of Goethe University. Prof. Stephanie Gras and Dr. Christopher Szeto from the Gras Lab at La Trobe University came all the way from Australia to talk about „Fight against COVID-19: functional and structural study of the T cell response“.
