Unfortunately we had to cancel the symposium due to the COVID-19 pandemic


The Gatsogiannis Lab is dedicated to elucidate the architecture of complex nanomachines, by their direct visualisation using cryoEM and image processing, at resolutions ranging from nanometer to near atomic level of detail. This technique allows us to study their macromolecular structure at near native conditions and in combination with biochemical and biophysical assays, can provide crucial mechanistic insight and thus, a solid framework to understand their mode of action.


Currently we do not have any open positions.
Externally funded candidates and motivated students interested in carrying out their master thesis in our laboratory are very welcome!
