Why many researchers study autophagy without knowing: lessons from simple model systems

April 27 @ 17:00 18:00

Part of the Lecture Series – Pitfalls and Solutions: ‘Good Experimental Design’ from the EQUIP Program.

Topic:              Why many researchers study autophagy without knowing: lessons from simple model systems             

Speaker:         Prof. Claudine Kraft, Institute for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Time:              Wednesday, 27 April 2022 at 5 pm

Venue:            Video conference via ZOOM

Abstract:         Autophagy is the waste disposal system of a eukaryotic cell. It is an essential biological pathway that removes defective or superfluous cellular factors. Autophagy thereby promotes organismal health and longevity, helping to combat cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. In my group we want to understand how autophagy works at the molecular level. I will introduce you to autophagy research both in yeast and mammalian cells, and discuss advantages and disadvantages of both systems. I will highlight common pitfalls and mistakes in (autophagy) research, and present some solutions to circumvent these..
