First CIRCE research meeting

last modified Sep 27, 2016 11:58 AM

CIRCE (Cambridge Infinitus Research Centre) has held its first research meeting in the new building in Philippa Fawcett Drive, on the West Cambridge site. Representatives from Infinitus visited Cambridge on 20th September 2016 and met current CIRCE staff to discuss research achievements and plan future programs. The meeting was held in the sparkling new Board Room in the new CEB building, where the main office and teaching block is now complete.

The CIRCE team and delegates from Infinitus posed in front of the plaque which will be positioned in the new CEB building outside the CIRCE labs, the result of a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and Infinitus (China). CIRCE is headed by Profs Clemens Kaminski and Alan Tunnacliffe. The collaboration aims to analyse the biological activity of polypeptides and polysaccharides derived from plants and fungi. 25% of all modern medicines are derivatives of natural products and a major focus in CIRCE will be the study of molecular regulators of protein homeostasis in treatment of protein misfolding diseases.
