Prof. Dr. Hannes Mutschler, Max Planck Institue for Biochemistry Martiensried; Biomimetic Chemistry TU Dortmund

“Bottom-up approaches in origins of life research and synthetic biology”

17th November 2020, 19ct – online

The bottom-up generation of chemical systems with life-like properties is a key objective of synthetic biology and origin of life research. In his talk, Prof. Dr. Mutschler will present his research, which focuses on the assembly of self-replicating systems from existing biological parts. Furthermore, he will discuss the potential role of nucleic acid catalysts, such as ribozymes, as key players in an early biology that preceded modern life on Earth.

Dr. Martin Denzel, Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing, Group leader for Metabolic and Genetic Regulation of Ageing

“Mutagenesis screens define unexpected roles of metabolism and protein synthesis in longevity”

5th November 2020, 19ct – online

Understanding the metabolic and genetic regulation of ageing requires multiple parallel approaches. In his lecture, Dr. Denzel presents his lab’s investigations of the metabolic modulation of protein homeostasis, mechanisms that control protein synthesis, and the role of stress resistance in longevity.
