Séminaire RDP par Aurélien Roux

Aurélien Roux from the University of Geneva will be visiting the ENS on Monday June 1st.
Aurélien has done some fantastic work on the role of the chemical and physical properties of membrane in the biology of intracellular vesicles. He will give a seminar at 11 am in the salle des Thèses entitled

The force of protein coats in membrane traffic
