Jehan Waeytens obtient une bourse Boël-Sofina pour un séjour de recherche de 6 mois à l'ICP

The Gustave Boël-Sofina grant will allow me to make a research stay at Institut de Chimie-Physique of the Université Paris-Saclay and work with a technique combining atomic force microscopy with nanoscale resolution, the size of the amyloid fibrils, and an infrared laser that allows studying protein structure. By using monomer labelled with 13C and fibrils in 12C, we will be able to study simultaneously the evolution of these two species. Thanks to AFM-IR, we want to study the mechanism of monomer’s conversion at the end of amyloid fibrils and its elongation. We hope that the determination of this mechanism will help development of new treatment for Alzheimer’s disease.
