Fabio Andres, a PhD student in Andreas Pluckthun's laboratory at the Institute of Biochemistry of the University of Zurich will give a seminar tomorrow in the Unit of Immunology and General Pathology of the Department of Molecular Medicine in Pavia entitled Darpins.

Darpins are artificial proteins built upon one of the structural elements of ankyrins, a complex and widespread protein family that connect a number of membrane proteins to the cytoskeleton.  F Andrtes will describe work demonstrating the darpins can be engineered in the laboratory to bind defined therapeutic targets and will exemplify this strategy with recent studies on the structure and activity of darpins targeting the receptor tyrosine kinase MET.

All College medical students are strongly invited to attend. The abstract of the talk and Fabio's biographical sketch can be found here.  The poster of the seminar can be downloaded here.
