View beyond the horizon – Lab exchange at Shriner’s Hospital for Children

After successfully passing the final Research School exam on analyzing scientific articles, Stefan Preisendörfer, MD student, was awarded with a 1000€ travel grant. With this, he was given the opportunity for a lab exchange at the Shriner's Hospital for Children, which is part of the Oregon Health and Science University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon. He worked under supervision of Hans Peter Bächinger and Yoshihiro Ishikawa in the Research Department from September 1st till October 11, 2017. Stefan performed experiments for his MD thesis, which included in vitro folding of antibodies and circular dichroism spectroscopy measurements. Just one week after coming back to Germany, he presented some of the results in our Research Forum on October 18, 2017.
