Maximum Precision in Protein Synthesis

8/9/2017 Researchers from the Center for Molecular Biology of Heidelberg University (ZMBH) and the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) have investigated the mode of action of a molecular chaperone vital to protein synthesis. Together with colleagues from the University of Cologne and the Penn State University (USA), they were able to demonstrate that the speed of protein synthesis is associated with the function of the Ssb chaperone.

BIOspective: Talks from a new perspective

In the upcoming events popular scientists, life science professionals, industry representatives, and other science relevant persons will be invited to the University of Heidelberg and will give first-hand insights into their own career path and research.

This talk series is organised by us students for students of all levels. Everybody is welcome to propose lecturers and to take an active part in the organisation. Moreover these talks will be unique in Heidelberg, providing a platform for bilateral discussion and for crosstalk between the years. We are looking forward to see you there.

BIOspective: Talk Dr. Barbara Janssens

When entering the masters program, we did it with the consciousness that something has to come afterwards. But what are the choices and paths open to us once we are done? In this light we have the pleasure to invite you to the third installment of BIOspective: Talks from a new perspective on September 27th, 2017 in the BioQuant (INF 267) seminar room 041. At that event Barbara Janssens, career manager from the DKFZ career service will give us her unique insights into available career choices and how to setup yourself for this.
