Dr. Sandra Bennink receives Theodore-von-Kármán fellowship for Outgoing Scientists
Dr. Sandra Bennink
has received a fellowship for Outgoing Scientists from the Theodore-von-Kármán Foundation.
For the project "The role of the stress granule-resident protein 7-Helix-1 in regulating translation during human-to-mosquito transmission of the malaria parasite Plasmodium falciparum" Dr. Bennink will travel for 3 months to our cooperation partners Scott Lindner and Manuel Llinás at Penn State University.
Together, they recently published the article "A seven-helix protein constitutes stress granules crucial for regulating translation during human-to-mosquito transmission of Plasmodium falciparum ".
During her stay at Penn State University, Dr. Bennink will learn the Turbo-ID method for the identification of protein interaction partners and the TRIBE method for the investigation of RNA-protein interaction.
