Conformation of the insulin receptor

Posted by on March 5th, 2018

A few days back over dinner at a CNV gathering, Theresia Gutmann from the Coskun lab casually told me about her PhD work. In collaboration with the Rockefeller University NYC, Theresia had visualized the changing conformation of the human insulin receptor upon insulin binding (paper). I made a sketchnote summarizing their discovery of a conformational[…]

Postdoc position (Francis Crick Institute, London): Developmental origins of health and longevity

Posted by on February 20th, 2018

An exciting opportunity to be part of a pioneering biomedical research institute, dedicated to innovation and science. A postdoctoral research post in the laboratory of Dr. Alex P.
