Department of Human Molecular Genetics (DHMG) was officially established in February 2008, and is a part of the Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology (IMBiB) at the Faculty of Biology of Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznań, Poland.
At the beginning of 2013, the genomics-oriented Laboratory of High Throughput Technologies (LHTT) was established.
Research of DMHG and LHTT is closely connected and concentrates on applications of advanced molecular and genetic expertise to prevention, diagnosis and therapy of human diseases.
DHMG and LHTT closely collaborate with physicians and hospitals, and its research outcome has direct implications and a potential for implementation in healthcare.
We are glad to inform you, that Professor Hans Bluyssen, the head of our Department, has received a research grant form NCN: Targeted inhibition of STATs and IRFs as a novel treatment strategy in cardiovascular disease.
We are happy to inform you that Małgorzata Szeląg and Katarzyna Błaszczyk have received PhD scholarships from NCN:
- Małgorzata Szeląg "Porównawcza analiza strukturalno-funkcjonalna in silico białek STAT i IRF, w celu identyfikacji związków chemicznych, działających jako specyficzne inhibitory funkcjonalne"
- Katarzyna Błaszczyk "Charakterystyka i biologiczne znaczenie odpowiedzi transkrypcyjnej indukowanej interferonem typu I zależnej od STAT2 lecz niezależnej od STAT1"

We would like to announce the 1st HADDOCK Workshop in Poznan on May 27-29 2015. The invited guests Prof. Alexandre Bonvin and Dr Anna Vangone from Computational Structural Biology Group, Science Faculty, Utrecht University, Netherlands will introduce the usage of HADDOCK software. HADDOCK is a pioneer software in data-driven (or integrative) modelling of protein interactions. Developed since 2003 in Bonvin Lab, it has been cited ca. 1000 times. A user-friendly web server is also available. HADDOCK is well-known for its ability to integrate data in the modelling calculations. Workshop is organized by our department and sponsored by KNOW and VitaInSilica Sp. z o. o.
Prof. A.M.J.J. Bonvin
Dr Anna Vangone
Hans A.R. Bluyssen - chairman
The workshop is free of charge. Participants have to cover only travel and accommodation expenses by themselves.
The number of participants is limited to 20 people so we will be accepting applications based on first come first serve rule.
