ISMB Friday Wraps provide a forum around which to relax and get to know other members of the Institute. They also facilitate communication among postdocs and students. Meetings are held weekly and begin with refreshments at 15.45, followed by two 30 minute talks from 16.00. Talks are given by postdocs, final year PhD students and/or young PIs.
Dr Christian Landry (University of Laval)
Prof Matthew Higgins (Department of Biochemistry, Oxford)
Host: Dr Andrew Osborne
Title: Structural insights into severe Malaria
Venue: Glaxo-Wellcome Lecture Room B62, Birkbeck College
'Molecular Pathogenesis (Viruses, Bacteria, Parasites)'
Coordinated by Dr Andrew Osborne and Dr Renos Savva
Pathogens and their hosts co-evolve in what has been described as a "molecular arms race". This series will explore the subversion of cellular processes from the nanoscale in the case of the smallest virus-like entities, the viroids, to microscopic viruses and the eukaryotic parasites causing malaria. As usual there will also be some off-topic talks.
The complete programme of talks is available on the ISMB website:
