Ana Melo Presents and Co-chairs at the 66th Biophysical Society Annual Meeting

Ana Melo Presents and Co-chairs at the 66th Biophysical Society Annual Meeting | iBB | Scoop.it

Ana Melo from BSIRG-iBB delivered an oral presentation at the 66th Biophysical Society Annual (BPS) Meeting, San Francisco, California (February 2022). The focus was on the characterization of the distinct conformational signatures of the flanking polyQ regions in the membrane-bound state of Huntington exon 1, and its implications in Huntington´s disease. Ana was also invited by the Scientific Committee to co-chair the Intrinsically Disordered Proteins (IDPs) section together with Martin Fossat from Washington University (St Louis). The BPS meeting is the largest and most reputed worldwide Biophysical Meeting, and this year was attended by biophysicists from 46 countries. In Ana´s section, researchers from Univ. Cambridge, Yale Univ., Washington Univ. St Louis, Univ. of Copenhagen and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute presented research focused on distinct biophysical features of IDPs associated with function and dysfunction.

Ana Melo gave an invited talk during the XVII Meeting of the Portuguese Society for Neuroscience, at Coimbra, 1 - 3 December, 2021. She presented recent work focused on characterizing the distinct conformational dynamics of the flanking polyQ regions in the membrane-bound state of Huntington exon 1, and its role in Huntington´s disease. Her presentation was in the framework of the SPB Symposium: “A biophysical perspective on degenerative diseases: protein assembly and phase separation”, together with Sandra Macedo Ribeiro (IBMC- i3S) and Salvador Ventura (IBB-Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona).
