The 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 integrative genomics and in silico modeling and virtual screening to prevention, diagnosis and therapy of human diseases.
On June 18 – 20 three members of the Laboratory of High Throughput Technologies, Dr Arkadiusz Kajdasz and PhD candidates Natalia Pstrąg and Weronika Majer, attended the 13th Microsymposium on Small RNAs in Vienna, Austria. Continue reading “13th Microsymposium on Small RNAs in Vienna”
On June 6-9 2018 prof. Hans Bluyssen, prof. Joanna Wesoły, Aleksandra Antończyk and Anna Piaszyk-Borychowska participated in TOLL 2018 Editing Innate Immunity conference in Porto, Portugal. Continue reading “TOLL 2018 Editing Innate Immunity – conference”
The Department of Human Molecular Genetics, Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology, Faculty of Biology, Adam Mickiewicz University in Poznan, headed by Prof. dr hab. Hans A.R. Bluyssen, invites applications for a postdoctoral position.
The position is currently available and funded by the National Science Centre within OPUS grant UMO-2016/23/B/NZ2/00623, entitled: “Characterization of a novel intracellular amplifier circuit that controls long-term responsiveness to type I and type II IFNs.”
The project combines state of the art technologies with a highly ambitious and competitive research environment.
On April 12th Natalia Pstrąg, our PhD candidate, was awarded the BGF “codirection” scholarship by the French Government. Thanks to this opportunity, she will be performing part of her PhD project in collaboration with the “Computational Epi- Genetics of Cancer” department, led by Valentina Boeva in the Cochin Institute in Paris.
From 26th to 27th March PhD candidate Weronika Majer and PhD Katarzyna Kluzek , members of the Laboratory of High Throughput Technologies, attended the “23rd International Conference on Cancer Research and Pharmacology” in Edinburgh. Our colleagues presented poster titled “Novel approach in monitoring of clear cell renal cell carcinoma (ccRCC) using molecular biomarkers” that won The Award for Best Poster. During Conference speakers presented talks about recent research and developments in cancer diagnosis, cancer therapy and pharmacology.
