We would like to present the abstract of our keynote speaker – Paula Duque – the Group Leader at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC). She, together with her group, uses arabidopsis as a model system and combines reverse genetics, physiology and biochemistry to investigate how plants perceive and respond to environmental cues at the molecular level.
We want to present you the fifth speaker of „The COINS 2018” conference – Paula Duque – who is the Group Leader at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência (IGC) which is located in Oeiras, Portugal. Her major line of work is addressing the biological relevance of alternative splicing in plant systems.
We would like to present you the abstract of our another keynote speaker – Ludmilla Morozova-Roche – the professor in Medical Biophysics, Department of Medical Biochemistry and Biophysics at the Umeå University, Sweden.
„Try to find out what interests you the most, if that challenge can truly take over your mind. If so, then try finding the best laboratory to solve your problem“ – an advice given to young scientists by professor Erwin Neher, a famous German biophysicist. In 1991 he was awarded with a Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine with professor Bert Sakmann for their discoveries concerning the function of single ion channels in cells.
We want to present you the second speaker of „The COINS 2018“ conference – Urtė Neniškytė – who currently works as Marie Sklodowska Curie Experienced Researcher at the Department of Neurobiology and Biophysics of Life Science Center at Vilnius University, Lithuania.
