Dorota Focht awarded EMBO Short-term Fellowship

PhD student Dorota Focht in Group Leader Poul Nissen’s group has been awarded a 6 weeks short-term fellowship from the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO). Dorota used the grant to do a research visit in the laboratory of Professor Jonathan Javitch at Columbia University (New York Institute, Devision of Molecular Therapeutics), US, from February until end March 2016. During her visit, she performed cell- and proteoliposome-based functional assays on a bacterial homologue of NSS proteins in order to characterize its substrate specificity after the mutagenesis of the binding site.
