A new tool to measure membrane tension

The concept: Facing a camera, two young researchers present their work and give 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: Margot Riggi, Biologist, postdoc in the Loewith & Roux labs (UNIGE), Karolina Niewola, former postdoc in the Loewith lab (UNIGE), Adai Colom Diego, postdoc in the Roux lab (UNIGE).
