STAT Protein Inhibitor Database

We proudly present the first interactive database devoted to compounds inhibiting STAT signalling pathways.

What you can do:

  • Investigate compounds inhibiting directly/indirectly STAT proteins
  • Analyse experiments that were conducted for available inhibitors
  • See available 3D visualizations of docking to STAT-SH2 domains
  • Get information on clinical trials
  • Download data
  • See statistical analysis for investigated conditions

PhD procedure opening

On 8th March 2019 our PhD candidate, Agata Michalska opened PhD procedure. She gave a presentation entitled “Characterization of a novel intracellular positive feedback loop that controls long-term responsiveness to type I and II IFN”.

You can see on the selfie how happy is Agata after the seminar  🙂 Good job!

Course in Warsaw, 18-22.02.2019

Our PhD students, Aleksandra Antończyk, Martyna Plens-Gałąska and Agata Michalska, participated in the course for researchers, who want to plan, design and/or conduct animal experiments. Lectures took place at the University of Warsaw Biological and Chemical Research Centre and were organized by Polish Laboratory Animal Science Association (PolLASA).

“Cytokines2018” in Boston, USA, 27-30.10.2018

On October 27 – 30 Martyna Plens-Gałąska from the Department of Human Molecular Genetics attended the conference “Cytokines2018” in Boston, USA. 

Her poster was presented during the conference (“Identication and characterization of a novel multi-STAT inhibitory compound C01L_F03 with anti-atherosclerotic potential”).

8th Polish Illumina Symposium

On October 11-12th prof. Joanna Wesoly and members of the LHHTT and DHMG departments had the pleasure to host, for the 8th time, the Polish Illumina Symposium. The two-day symposium was rich with talks given by the specialists in the field of sequencing powered mainly by a range of Illumina platforms.
The talks were complemented by the Illumina and BIOKOM representatives updating the participants on the newest sequencing solutions.
We are very happy to have successfully hosted this event and hope to see you all next year!

Postdoc position

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.
