Radboud Researchers develop novel pharmaceuticals with ground-breaking technologies
Nijmegen, 23 November 2018– Every year on the remembrance day of Albert Nobel, the prestigious Nobel Prizes are awarded to excellent researchers, writers or institutes. This year, the Nobel Prize for Chemistry has been awarded to Frances Arnold, George Smith and Gregory Winter for the directed evolution of enzymes, a technology that can be used to develop new pharmaceuticals, among other things.
On Monday December 10
Radboud University Professor Ger Pruijn will give a lecture on the different studies that have led to this Nobel Prize. Over the past years, the Radboud Institute for Molecular Life Sciences (RIMLS) has extensively been using the antibody phage display technology developed by Gregory Winter. Furthermore, the peptide phage display technology developed by George Smith has been applied by the Biomolecular Chemistry laboratory of the university in several research studies in the nineties.
The presentation by Prof. Ger Pruijn is suitable for teachers, students and everyone else who is interested in getting a better understanding of the technologies developed by the Nobel Prize laureates and their everyday life uses. This includes the treatment of cancer and autoimmune diseases and neutralization of hazardous substances. You are cordially invited!
When and where?
The lecture on the Nobelprize for Chemistry will be given on December 10, from 4pm to 5pm. The activity will be located in the Linnaeusbuilding (Room 6), Heyendaalseweg 137. Free drinks and snacks will be made available after the lecture.
