Dr Manka did his PhD in Professor H Nagase's lab at the Kennedy Institute of Rheumatology in 2011. He then pivoted to cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) studies of the intracellular microtubule filaments in Professor C Moore’s lab at the ISMB. He will talk about the biochemical and biophysical crosstalk between brain extracellular matrix and neuronal cytoskeleton revealed by time-resolved cryo-EM combined with total internal reflection fluorescence microscopy.
