Grab some lunch from the Darwin servery and enjoy an interesting science talk and discussion over lunch (talk starts 13.10, so make sure you're seated by then). Looking forward to seeing you there.

On the bacterial cell surface we can find structures, which enable the bacterium to interact with its environment, such as cells in the human bodies, e.g. in our noses or guts. To prevent infections by pathogenic bacteria, we aim to understand how these structures bind to the bacterium’s environment. The aim of my PhD project is to investigate these structures to be able to identify them, and for instance provide candidates for vaccine targets.
