Francesco Stellacci “Supramolecular approaches to Engineer Materials Interactions with Viruses: From Stabilization to Virucidal Drugs”

September 25 @ 11:00 am
ISIS,

Francesco Stellacci Institute of Materials, and Interfaculty Bioengineering Institute, Ecole Polytecnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Lausanne, 1015, Switzerland Email: francesco.stellacci@epfl.ch Viruses kill every day in large numbers especially in low-income countries. Any given day ~1600 children age 1 to 5 die of diarrhea (mostly due to rotavirus). More than 5000 people have died of Ebola in the last outbreak. On the other hand, viruses also save lives as vaccines; unfortunately, because of their thermal instability, vaccines need constant refrigeration. This…

Prof. Makoto ONAKA “Unique Structural Properties of Tin Hydroxide Nanoparticles-embedded Montmorillonite (Sn-Mont) Demonstrating Its Efficient Acid Catalysis for Various Organic Reactions”

September 26 @ 5:00 pm
ISIS,

C O N F E R E N C E Prof. Makoto Onaka Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, The University of Tokyo “Unique Structural Properties of Tin Hydroxide Nanoparticles-embedded Montmorillonite (Sn-Mont) Demonstrating Its Efficient Acid Catalysis for Various Organic Reactions” We originally developed tin hydroxide nanoparticles-embedded montmorillonite (Sn-Mont) by the simple treatment of sodium ion-exchanged montmorillonite (Na-Mont) with aqueous SnCl4, and the physical and chemical properties of Sn-Mont were investigated by N2 adsorption, XRD, TG, TEM, 119Sn MAS NMR,…

Prof. Dr. Thorsten Stafforst “Site-specific Manipulation of Nucleic Acids with (Bio)Chemical Tools”

October 9 @ 4:30 pm
ISIS,

Prof. Dr. Thorsten Stafforst Interfaculty Institute of Biochemistry, Auf der Morgenstelle 15, 72076 Tübingen (Germany) thorsten.stafforst@uni-tuebingen.de www.ifib.uni-tuebingen.de/research/stafforst/   RNA modifications shape the expression of genetic information in many ways. Tools to manipulate single nucleobases at specific sites in selected transcripts in vivo are rare. We are engineering artifical RNA-guided proteins that allow to perform site-directed RNA editing in a highly rational and specific way (1-5). We will present new data that demonstrate highly specific and parallel editing of several endogenous…
