RNA Seminar: Petr Chlanda
We cordially invite you to Petr Chlanda's talk “Minimal structural components of the SARS-CoV-2 pore and assembling virions”. The talk will take place in Building D15, room 01.002-004 at 5pm.
Dr Petr Chlanda - “Minimal structural components of the SARS-CoV-2 pore and assembling virions”
Petr Chlanda’s research group is interested in studying how viruses interact with cellular membranes and lipids during infection. Many enveloped viruses such as influenza or Ebola must cross the cell membrane during entry and exit. To do so, viruses developed or hijacked fascinating protein machinery, which are able to remodel, fuse or cut membranes in processes dependent on specialized lipids. Petr Chlanda’s lab uses and further develops cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) techniques in conjunction with other imaging methods as fluorescence microscopy and imaging mass spectrometry to solve the puzzle of viral-membrane interactions.
