Structural Biology of Immune Signalling

Structural Biology of Immune Signalling

Internship Description

In the Arold lab, we use biochemistry, biophysics and structural methods such as X-ray crystallography, small angle X-ray scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance and cryo-electron microscopy to reveal the 3D structure of protein complexes involved in controlling the immune system. The student will be embedded in a team of structural biologists and help with protein production and biochemistry, crystallization screens and EM particle picking. Some prior wet-lab experience would be a plus.​​

Deliverables/Expectations

​​Recombinant production and purification of proteins. Biophysical protein assays. Structure determination of proteins or protein-ligand complexes.
