Thema: „Proteostasisimpairment in protein-misfolding and -aggregation diseases.“
Referent: Prof. Dr. Mark Hipp, Groningen
For over 100 years medical researchers have observed protein deposits, also called aggregates, in the brains of patients with neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s or Huntington’s Disease as well as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). These aggregates are suspected to contribute to the death of nerve cells. The group of Mark Hipp tries to understand how aggregates harm cells, and to identify the mechanisms by which cells protect themselves from these toxic aggregates.
