  • Prof. Yuji Sugita, Chief Scientist at RIKEN, Japan visited our lab and gave a talk.
  • Six members of our lab will present their research at the “From Computational Biophysics to Systems Biology 2014” conference in Gdańsk. Joanna Trylska is an invited speaker, Filip Leonarski will present his research during a CBSB Outstanding Young Researcher talk and Marta Kulik will have a 15 minute long presentation. Others from our group present their research as posters.
  • Our group participated in the “Meet the ribosome” symposium, with presentation of prof. Venkatraman Ramakrishnan (2009 Nobel Prize in chemistry) on achievements and future challanges in ribosome structural studies.
  • Marta Dudek was awarded funding by National Science Centre in the PRELUDIUM call. Congratulations!

December 2013

Filip received a scholarship in the 3rd edition of the Mobility Plus programme by the Polish Ministry of Science and Higher Education for a 2 year research visit to the Institute of Molecular and Cell Biology in Strasbourg, France to work on a more physical, yet efficient representation of magnesium(II) ions for RNA full-atomistic molecular dynamic simulations.

November 2013

  • Kasia’s project entitled “Computational study of physicochemical properties of fragment bacterial ribosome and enzymes in the bounding places of lincosamides using computational modelling methods” has been awarded funding by the National Science Centre in the PRELUDIUM call.
  • Agnieszka received scholarship in the 5th edition of contest for scholarships for PhD students and young post-docs in Modern University competition. Congratulations! She has also obtained a scholarship from the program “Development of science – the development of the region – supporting scholarships and support for Mazovia doctoral students” co-funded by the European Union under the European Social Fund.
