Congress BIO2018 participation

Sep 20, 2018

Three lab members attanded the 3rd Congress of Polish Biosciences BIO2018 “Through interdisciplinary approach into new solutions,” which was held in Gdańsk on 18-21 September 2018. We were happy to take this opportunity to present our work on IFIT proteins. Maria Górna was invited to give a lecture "How to end a viral RNA - lessons from the IFIT proteins" as part of the EMBO Session. We also presented two posters: "Structure-function studies of RNA-binding IFIT proteins" by Natalia Karolak and "Isolation and biophysical studies of proteins from IFIT and FASTKD families" by Mikołaj Kuska. The conference had an excellent program and exciting speakers, and we are grateful to EMBO and the Polish Biochemical Society for sponsorship of the attendance of our lab members.
