19 June: Guest Lecture: A Confocal Nanoscanning - On-bead Screening Platform (CONA) for Basic and Translational Science

On 19 June, 2017, Manfred Auer will hold a guest lecture on the subject of "A Confocal Nanoscanning - On-Bead Screening Platform (CONA) for basic and translational science" at the Grünen Hörsaal (403) of the NW Faculty. The Department of Molecular Biology invites you to attend!

Manfred Auer ist Professor an der University of Edinburgh, wo er den Chair of Chemical and Translational Biology innehat.

Abstract:

Using alternative, and pragmatic approaches the Auer lab develops methods to suggest, produce, find and evaluate chemical and biological entities. In combining basic quantitative molecular recognition science with initial drug discovery efforts, we identify small molecular tool compounds and biosimilar probes which can be further developed from hits to lead compounds and applied to chemically validate protein targets. Supported by developments from our efforts in the core areas of biology, chemistry and engineering, we have developed four screening platforms which are integrated into one discovery process. In this seminar I will discuss new developments and applications of our Confocal Nanoscanning – On-bead Screening platform (CONA). Particulary, UPS-CONA, a fully integrated process to monitor enzymatic reactions in the ubiquitin – proteasome system, ASYN-CONA, a first in class assay technique to screen for inhibitors of the first steps of oligomerization of the major Parkinson’s disease target alpha-synuclein, and Phage-CONA, a suite of assays which integrate phage display with CONA and which are applied to investigate the antiviral and antibacterial potency of egg enzymes like ovotransferrins.

    The Faculty of Education has organized the Summer School, "Bildung des Subjekts", at the Unipark Nonntal. Lecturers are, among others, Winfried Böhm, General Pedagogy, University of Würzburg, and Michael Winkler, General Pedagogy and Theory of Social Pedagogy, University of Jena.
    In Salzburg, the art business will be in full swing in Summer 2017. During the five week Festival, the city, as the cultural centre, is promoting numerous musical and theatrical productions, as well as exhibitions.
    The Summerschool is a cooperative project of the Universities of Graz, Vienna and Salzburg. The program includes visits to the UNESCO World Heritage cities of Salzburg, Graz and Vienna. Coordinator of the University of Salzburg is the communication scientist, Kurt Luger.
    At the 18th Salzburg Summer School "European Private Law", held from 3 – 15 July, 2017, at the University of Salzburg under the direction of Professor Michael Rainer, 40 teachers from Europe and approximately 150 students took part. There was no sense of an anti-European sentiment.
    The Summer Uni "ditact_women's IT" of the University of Salzburg is specifically aimed at women with technical interests. It takes place from 21 August to 2 September at the Unipark Nonntal and at the Fachhochschule Salzburg. Information: http://www.ditact.ac.at.
    Invitation to visit books, study scores, photos, as well as personal documents and more.
    This year's Week of Higher Education Institutions (Hochschulwochen), which will be held 31 July to 6 August, is devoted to the "public". Program highlights are the award of the theological prize for the life’s work of Eberhard Schockenhoff on 2 August at 19:30, Aula, and an official ceremony with the keynote speaker, sociologist and political scientist, Hartmut Rosa, on 6 August at 10:30 am, Aula.
