NMSU Biomedical Research Seminar – Erik Yukl, Chemistry and Biochemistry Professor talk titled ‘Structure and Function of bacterial zinc import proteins, a potential antimicrobial drug target’ @ Domenici Hall Room 109

September 14, 2018 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

NMSU Biomedical Research Seminar to spotlight NMSU faculty today

Erik Yukl, assistant professor in the NMSU Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, will present a talk titled “Structure and Function of bacterial zinc import proteins, a potential antimicrobial drug target” at 3:30 p.m. today, in Room 109 of Domenici Hall on the NMSU campus. Refreshments will be served starting at 3 p.m.

The lecture is part of a series of Friday afternoon seminars that are broadly focused on biomedical research and are open to the NMSU community and the public. The series will be held most Fridays during the semester and will feature nationally recognized scientists as well as a spotlight talk by NMSU faculty. The full schedule can be found at http://www.nminbre.org/.

Yukl will discuss structural and functional studies on proteins involved in bacterial zinc homeostasis evaluate these as potential targets for novel antibiotics. A complete abstract of the talk can be found at https://www.nminbre.org/Erik.Yukl.pdf.
