The International Institute of Molecular Mechanisms and Machines (IMol), Polish Academy of Sciences, was constituted in December 2020, in partnership with University Medical Center Göttingen, Germany.
IMol has been established to conduct scientific research and provide training in the fields of biological, chemical, medical, biotechnological, bioinformatics, biophysical, pharmacological, and similar sciences, in the international environment conducive to collaborative efforts, research and development interactions with biotechnological industry, and wide dissemination of our results.
We aim at the development of solutions that will help everyone on this planet live a safer life.

Institution:  "ReMedy" International Research Agenda Unit, IMol Polish Academy of Sciences
Project leader:  Agnieszka Chacińska and Magda Konarska, Directors of ReMedy
Project title: “Regenerative Mechanisms for Health”,
Subproject: “Bunyaviral translation strategies”, Laboratory of Structural Biology of Virus-host Interactions, Head: Piotr Gerlach, PhD
Project description: Segmented negative-strand RNA bunyaviruses remain in the cytoplasm where they perform both transcription and replication of their genetic material. Little is known about the direct interaction of bunyaviral proteins with cellular translation factors. The aim of this project is to characterize function and structure of the viral-host protein complexes involved in altering cellular host translation during infection. We are looking for a motivated PhD applicant, interested in learning cutting-edge structural biology techniques (cryo-EM, X-ray crystallography). Experience in purification and biochemical characterization of protein complexes would be an advantage.
