UWindsor biochemistry graduate student Cody Caba and professor Bulent Mutus display the crystal structure of protein disulfide isomerase. Mutus received an NSERC Discovery Grant to examine cell proteins and structures and how they contribute to diseases.UWindsor biochemistry graduate student Cody Caba and professor Bulent Mutus display the crystal structure of protein disulfide isomerase.

Biochemist to study how proteins contribute to neurodegenerative diseases

Bulent Mutus is a micro mechanic.

But instead of fixing cars with wrenches and grease, the biochemist rolls up his sleeves and chops up and rebuilds proteins using microscopes and Petri dishes.

“If this enzyme were a car we would know where the engine is, but now we are looking at turning that engine off so the pathology will go away,” the UWindsor professor said.

Event a chance to meet and greet members of the Feminist Research Group

Involvement in the Feminist Research Group is an amazing opportunity to meet new people, discuss feminist issues, be exposed to new ideas, and develop professionally, says Mia Sisic.

The group brings together graduate students committed to feminist and women-centered works and research.

“We seek to develop and maintain a feminist community that welcomes, encourages, validates and challenges its members in an environment that promotes personal and professional networking,” says Sisic, a master’s student in psychology.
