Islam Faress is new PhD student in Sadegh Nabavi's group

Islam Faress continues in Sadegh Nabav's group, now as PhD student per 1. August 2018. During his PhD studies, Islam will investigate the heterosynaptic mechanisms of associative-memory consolidation. To this end, he will use optogenetics to manipulate the synaptic activity and devise optogenetic-tools to achieve an independent two-colours…

CoLuAa - XXVI 2018
CoLuAa is a meeting traditionally organized by the structural biology groups in Copenhagen, Lund and Aarhus (hence the name) but it is open to anyone interested. The meeting has been organized annually since 1992. CoLuAa is this year organized by the Department of Molecular Biology and Genetics at Aarhus University, Denmark.  CoLuAa aims at bringing together all structural biologists from Copenhagen, Lund and Aarhus. The community is loosely defined by its interest in X-ray crystallography, Electron Microscopy, and related structural methods. It is both a scientific as well as a social event meant to cultivate coherence in the community and foster new collaborations. The program will consist of selected presentations selected from submitted abstracts with an emphasis on young scientists and newcomers to the community. Submission of abstract is mandatory for participation for students and postdocs. If your abstract is not selected for a talk, you will be expected to present a poster. The best poster and the best talk will receive an award.
