4EU+ information meeting at UW
25 listopada 2019

All members of the UW community are invited to take part in the 4EU+ information meeting, which will take place on 5th December in the Old Library building. Participants will find out about the possibilities for students, doctoral candidates, and employees.

The 4EU+ Alliance, with the University of Warsaw as its member, is among the consortia selected for funding in the first pilot ‘European Universities’ call for proposals, launched as part of the 2019 Erasmus+ programme. The European Commission announced the results in June this year. On 7th-8th November, in Brussels, the European University Initiative was officially launched. More information >>

The most important information regarding the 4EU+ Alliance, flagship programmes, and the European University Initiative will be presented during the meeting.

The event is open to everyone:

  • Students and doctoral candidates who want to find out more about education projects and research-based education within 4EU+,
  • UW employees who would like to work together with other 4EU+ universities in terms of education, research, and innovation.

The 4EU+ information meeting will take place on 5th December at 9:00-11:30 in the Old Library building (aula).

The idea of the European University, according to the European Commission, is to bring together a new generation of creative Europeans able to cooperate across languages, borders and disciplines to address societal challenges and skills shortages faced in Europe. European Universities are transnational alliances of higher education institutions from across the EU that share a long-term strategy and promote European values and identity.

Title: New Methods For Imaging Serine Proteases Involved In Cell Death Induction

Date: November, 29th (Friday) 2019 at 12 p.m.

Venue: Lecture Hall 0142 (ground floor)

Host: Prof. Joanna Trylska


Growing interest in NK and CTLs in target killing has made it imperative to develop new tools to measure the early events in pathogen elimination and targeted cell death. So far selective and potent functional small chemical tools for granzymes had not been discovered and only antibody related techniques are used in Grzs investigation, however they label total protein amount and cannot distinguish between active and inactive form of enzyme.

To overcome these limitations, we have developed innovative Grzs chemical tools that can be used to find answers for important, questioned functions of Grzs, which still remain controversial.  These tools were used for imaging of Granzyme A and Granzyme B, enzymes involved in cell death induction, monitoring of their location and changes upon stimulation.
