The RTG organizes workshops, seminars and other events within its accompanying graduate programme. For us, this an effective way to stimulate scientific exchange and collaborations.



Clara Ortegón Salas wins poster prize

Congratulations to Clara Ortegón Salas, who was awarded with "Best poster prize" for her poster with the titel "Signal-regulated oxidation of proteins via MICAL" on the 2nd Symposium of the SPP1710 !
Further authors were: Katharina Schneider, Carsten Berndt, Marcel Deponte, Christopher Horst Lillig, Manuela Gellert.

The conference took place on Rauischholzhausen castle from 18 to 19th March and it was organized by the SPP1710.

The SPP1710 is an interdisciplinary consortium of more than 30 scientists joined forces to synergistically address fundamental questions in the field of redox signaling and thiol-based redox regulation.


From October 2014 the DFG is funding the Research Training Group 1947 Biochemical, Biophysical, and Biomedical Effects of Reactive Oxygen and Nitrogen Species on Biological Membranes - "BiOx" - at the University of Greifswald and the University Medicine Greifswald.

Biological Membranes define living cells and determine their interaction with their environment. Reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (ROS/RNS) profoundly affect the physico-chemical properties and thereby the physiological functions of biological membranes.

In an interdisciplinary and interfaculty approach we aim to overcome the traditional boarders between biochemistry, biophysics, medicine, botany, and pharmacy to analyse the mechanisms of ROS/RNS production and interaction with all constitutents of biological membranes.
