We would like to invite you to a lecture entitled “Riboregulation: Biology, Mechanisms and Scope” which will be held by prof. dr hab. Matthias Hentze (EMBL Heidelberg, Germany).
The lecture will be held on Friday, March 24th, 2023 at 10 am in the aula of the Institute of Bioorganic Chemistry PAS (Noskowskiego 12/14, entry from Wieniawskiego street).
About the speaker:
Prof. Matthias Hentze is a physician. For many years, his research focused on the understanding of posttranscriptional gene regulation, especially the control of protein synthesis. His work has also provided fundamental insights into the molecular mechanisms governing iron homeostasis and diseases of altered iron metabolism. At present, prof. Hentze studies connections between gene regulation and metabolism. Following their discovery of hundreds of new RNA-binding proteins, his team investigates the process of riboregulation, a novel biological control mechanism that they also recently described. Prof. Henzte holds an impressive publication record with over ~350 contributions, a total number of citations over 35,000 and an H-index of 102 (web-of-science query for Hentze MW).
