DGA predoctoral fellowship at University of Zaragoza (BIFI)
The “Diputación General de Aragón” – DGA offers fellowships to carry out a PhD Thesis on the molecular recognition of GalNAc-Ts and other glycosyltransferases on protein substrates at the Universidad of Zaragoza, Institute for Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems – BIFI.
The research will be on how GalNcAc-Ts and other glycosyltransferases recognise and catalyse their protein substrates, and the implications of these processes in different diseases. The project will be done at the Institute of Biocomputation and Physics of Complex Systems.
