Lecture by Andreas Vilcinskas: Animal Venoms and Genomics

More than 200.000 animal species produce toxins to defend themselves against enemies or to kill their prey. These toxins are a barely tapped bioresource for the development of new medicines. In his lecture “Tiergifte und Genomik: Tiergifte als Bioressource für neue Medikamente” Prof. Dr. Andreas Vilcinskas (LOEWE-TBG / Fraunhofer-IME) will talk about new methods for screening substances for potential ingredients of new medicines. The lecture will take place digitally at 7:15 p.m. on Wednesday, April 23. A livestream can be found at www.senckenberg.de/live. The event is part of the Senckenberg lecture series ” Bauplan der Natur – Wie Genomik unseren Blick auf die biologische Vielfalt revolutioniert”.
