Jue Chen speaker of the year lecture series

We are proud to announce the lecture series of our speaker of the year Dr. Jue Chen (Rockefeller University). Dr. Chen studies the structure of proteins that use energy to transport solutes across cell membranes. Determining how such transporters work will aid in understanding the basic mechanisms of active transport. Her research centers on structural and mechanistic studies of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters.

Later this month, Dr. Jue Chen will give three lectures in The Netherlands about:

Structural insights into Cystic Fibrosis Transmembrane Regulator (CFTR) dysfunction and pharmacological rescue

Mon Sep 26, 13-14h. Univ of Groningen
Tue Sep 27, 16-17h Univ of Utrecht
Fri Sep 30, 15:30-16:30 Univ of Leiden

These lectures are open for the public. For more information check our web site.
