Alex Kreutzberger – Best Student Poster Award FASEB

Congratulations to Alex Kreutzberger for winning the Best Student Poster Award at the FASEB research conference on Molecular Biophysics of Membranes held in Snowmass, CO in July 2016. Alex works in the lab of Lukas Tamm and his poster was entitled “Calcium-mediated docking and fusion of purified dense core vesicles with reconstituted membranes”

Congratulations to Sung-Tae Yang and Volker Kiessling with Lukas Tamm for their contribution to Nature Communications

Abstract Lipids and proteins are organized in cellular membranes in clusters, often called ‘lipid rafts’. Although raft-constituent ordered lipid domains are thought to be energetically unfavourable for membrane fusion, rafts have long been implicated in many biological fusion processes. For the case of HIV gp41-mediated membrane fusion, this apparent contradiction can be resolved by recognizing […]
