Selected abstracts of PhasAGE members to attend FASEB Science Research Conference 2021


The PhasAGE consortium has awarded three researchers with conference fellowships to cover expenses for their participation at “The Protein Aggregation Conference: Function, Dysfunction, and Disease” – FASEB Science Research Conference. The conference will be held online from 23 to 25 June 2021.

The selected participants will present their work as e-poster presentation:

“Characterization of the activity, aggregation, and toxicity of homomers and heteromers of WT and seipinopathy-associated N88S mutant BSCL2”, Vitor Teixeira (Instituto de Biologia Molecular e Celular – IBMC/i3S, PT)

 “Towards the development of second-generation kinetic stabilizers  to treat transthyretin amyloidosis”, Francisca Pinheiro (Autonomous University of Barcelona, ES)

“A generic approach to study the kinetics of liquid–liquid phase separation under near-native conditions”, Anna Bratek-Skicki (Vlaams Instituut voor Biotecnhologie – VIB, BE)
