German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases. Bonn, Germany

Ina Vorberg, Friday Octboer 11: Vorgerg, from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Bonn, Germany, is interested in elucidating differences and commonalities between prions and other amyloidogenic proteins and to dissect cellular pathways necessary for prion replication. In particular she is studying cellular replication mechanisms of TSE strains and prion-like replication of cytosolic protein aggregates. She has been invited by Gian Gaetano Tartaglia (CRG).
