ASRC- CCNY Seminar Series in Biochemistry, Biophysics and Biodesign

As the first speaker in this series, Sjors Scheres, Structural Studies Division at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK, will present a one-hour talk titled:

Cryo-EM Structures of Amyloids from the Human Brain

In it, he will give an introduction to the basics of cryo-EM structure determination and explain how such structures have revealed unexpected differences between the tau filaments from the different diseases, and how these provide exciting avenues to unravel the mechanisms of amyloid formation in neurodegeneration. Following the talk will be time for a Q & A.
