Ruoshi Peng wins poster prize
4 December 2017
DPhil student Ruoshi Peng from Mads Gyrd-Hansen’s lab won a prize for a poster she presented at the EMBO Young Investigator’s PhD course in Heidelberg, Germany. In her poster, Ruoshi highlighted a technique she is using to study regulatory proteins modified by chains of small proteins called ubiquitin. Because ubiquitin chains are often very short-lived, these modifications have previously been very difficult to study. However, with this new technique, Ruoshi can investigate the function of ubiquitin chains to understand their role in the regulation of inflammatory cell death.
