Annual Fall Meeting RTG2467 in Kloster Nimbschen/Grimma 17.11.-19.11.2022
After 2 years, finally, we met in person in Kloster Nimbschen and had have a very succesful scientific meeting! Congratulations to Tala Alakhras and Coninika Guha, whop received the awards for best talk “Characterization of Cyclin L protein and its oncogenic role mediated by the RS domain” and for best poster presentation “Paraspeckle as a therapeutic target for inhibition of tumour progression and metastasis”.
2nd Fall Meeting of the German Society for Mass Spectrometry (DGMS) Young Scientists in Kloster Hünfeld from 28.09.-30.09.2022
The 2nd Fall Meeting of the German Society for Mass Spectrometry (DGMS) Young Scientists was held in Kloster Hünfeld. Alan An Jung Wei held a talk about his work on his PhD project on “Different Oligomeric States of the Tumor Suppressor p53 Show identical Binding Behavior towards the S100ß Homodimer” as well as Alessio Di Ianni on his work “A Novel Trifunctional MS-cleavable Cross-linker for Copper-Catalyzed Azide/Alkyne Cycloaddition (CuAAC) Enrichment of Cross-linked Peptides”. Wiebke Günther presented her poster for her work on the “Application of the Protease Nepenthesin for Hydrogen-Deuterium Exchange Mass Spectrometry”. The projects received a lot of attention, and we were able to have interesting conversations with other young scientists. Wiebke even won a prize in first place for her Poster. Besides listening to all the interesting talks and discussing our work we were able to connect with other students and industry partners during the evening events.

Gordon Research Conference Intrinsically Disordered Proteins
The Functional Role of Disorder in Biological Systems
Les Diablerets Switzerland 25.06.2022-01.07.2022
The Gordon research seminar and conference on IDPs was held in Les Diablerets this year. Nine of the PhD students discussed and presented their research with the experts. Luca Lauth held a talk about his PhD project on ‘the primary sequence of LCDs that encodes subcellular localization signals’. We received a warm welcome to the international IDP community as we sat together with Keith and Ya-Yue J. Van Dunker for dinner that evening, where Keith expressed his interest in Luca’s ongoing research. Our projects received a lot of attention at the daily poster sessions and Julia Hesselbarth even won a prize at the end of the meeting for her poster on “SNARE complex regulation by Complexin-1 – a structural mass spectrometry study”! Besides listening to and discussing ongoing development in the field, we had the opportunity to mingle with other scientists and industry partners from around the globe. The meeting was set in the beautiful Bernese Alpes, offering the opportunity to hike and take the gondola up the Glacier3000.
