VENOMS: ENEMIES OR ALLIES?
Conferenciante: Sara García Linares, Profesora Contratada postdoctoral UCM-Harvard.

Venoms have fascinated humankind throughout history. There are thousands of venomous species, some of them even lethal. But what if we could use those venoms in our benefit? Pore-forming proteins from venoms can kill cells by inserting into their lipid membranes. A detailed study of these proteins could let us use them as bioinsecticides or anti-tumor agents, among other applications.
