07 Jan EMBO fellowship awarded to Liana Tsiatsiani
Liana Tsiatsiani, postdoc at the Biomolecular Mass Spectrometry and Proteomics group (Utrecht University) received a 2-year EMBO Long-Term Fellowship for her research proposal entitled ‘Proteases on demand’. The proposed research aims to exploit the proteolytic
information encrypted in fungi, an excellent resource of high biodiversity, for the discovery of novel proteases with user-defined properties and tailored towards specific applications that may allow sequencing of complete proteomes and open up new avenues in medical protein research. The research will be performed in collaboration with the Fungal Physiology group of Prof. Dr. Ronald De Vries (CBS-KNAW).
