News from the Bulleid group
Dr Ojay Oka recently attended the FASEB meeting “Functional disulfide bonds in health and disease” in Leesburg, Virginia; giving an oral and poster presentation with the title “PDI oxidoreductases regulate the function of ATF6 during the UPR stress response”. Greg Poet, a previous PhD student from the Bulleid group, who now works as a post doc in Memphis Tennessee also attended and presented.
Prof Neil Bulleid attends the Gordon Research Conference “Thiol-Based Redox Regulation and Signaling” in Castelldefels, Spain, giving a talk with the title "Reversing Redox Modifications in the Mammalian Endoplasmic Reticulum" and attends the Biochemical Society meeting “Protein disulfide bonds-biochemistry, biotechnology and biomedical impact”, which was held at the University of Kent. This event celebrated the work of Robert Freedman, who was a major contributor to the field of protein folding, and with whom Neil worked during his postdoc in Kent. Neil was invited to give a talk and presented work from the lab on the “Role of protein folding in disulfide formation”.
The Bulleid group had some fun and went go-karting, with Neil taking first place!
