Amyloids: Friends and Foes – Elizabeth Anderson, PhD

June 2, 2020

Amyloid is a dirty word that conjures visions of neurodegenerative disease and mad cows. Learn about these cross-beta structures from Elizabeth Anderson (who certainly wouldn’t be able join us at IRL SCI Cafe, since she’s from Buffalo).. She’ll tell us about protein structure, neurodegenerative disease, transmissible spongiform encephalopathies, h’orderves, hormones, skin color, biomimetic materials, and diabetes: the good, the bad, and the can-only-be-destroyed-by-flamethrower.
