Emma Fenech wins poster prize
28 November 2017
DPhil student Emma Fenech from John Christianson’s group won a prize for the poster she presented at the EMBO conference on Proteostasis in Ericeira, Portugal. Her research focuses on mapping the molecular interactions of protein machines called ubiquitin ligases that add ubiquitin, a small regulatory protein, to other proteins. One of these ubiquitin ligases is known to regulate signalling in the immune system and she demonstrated that the interactions this ligase makes are important for controlling the immune response.
