Dr. Eskandarian Boroujeni received an EMBO|EMBL Symposium fellowship to present his work titled “Genome-wide integrative analysis reveals the timely IFN-I-dependent induction of motif-specific genes in correlation with immune response progression” in an EMBO | EMBL Symposium: Multiomics to Mechanisms: Challenges in Data Integration taking place at Heidelberg, Germany 15 – 17 September 2021.

Passport to the Future

Our Ph.D. student, Aleksandra Antończyk, gave an oral presentation titled “Identification and characterization of ALEKSIN, novel pan-IRF inhibitory compound as a potential treatment strategy in cardiovascular disease (CVD)” at a conference organized as part of the project: Passport to the future -Interdisciplinary doctoral studies at the Faculty of Biology, Adam Mickiewicz University, Poznań.
Her work was partly supported by receiving a MiniGrant funded by the project entitled “Passport to the
future – Interdisciplinary doctoral studies at the Faculty of Biology UAM”. The aim of the project “Passport to the future – Interdisciplinary doctoral studies at the Faculty of Biology UAM” POWR.03.02.00-00-I006/17 is to increase the quality and effectiveness of education at the third-degree studies of the Faculty of Biology UAM by implementing the high-quality modernized interdisciplinary program of full-time
doctoral studies internationally in the field of biology, biotechnology, biochemistry, ecology, and environmental protection.

8th Polish Illumina Symposium
