SciLifeLab The Svedberg seminar series, Vladimir N. Uversky, Intrinsically disordered proteins

Dr. Vladimir N. Uversky is Ass. Prof. at the Department of Molecular Medicine of University of South Florida, College of Medicine, and a Leading Scientist at the Institute for Biological Instrumentation, Russian Academy of Sciences. His research interests are focused on protein physics, and he studies protein structure, stability, dynamics, function, folding, misfolding, and non-folding, being especially excited by everything related to intrinsically disordered.

Swedish FTD Initiative Symposium

Frontotemporal dementia (FTD) is a complex neurodegenerative disorder characterised by a large variety of genetic associations, underlying pathologies and clinical symptoms. As of today, there are no treatments available that have preventative and/or curative effects on the disease. Swedish FTD Initiative is a multidisciplinary consortium created in 2017 by the support of The Schörling Foundation, […]
