Snapshots of Chemical Biology (Episode 3)

Transferrin receptor mediated cellular delivery of AspA-tagged peptides

The concept: Facing a camera, one young researcher presents his work and gives emphasis on the biochemical problem behind it.

The audience: Scientists from different disciplines rapidly learn how to think in a chemical biology way, i.e. how tools taken from chemistry can help solve problems in biology.

The protagonist: Daniel Abegg, PhD student in Adibekian lab, UNIGE. Biochemist.
