CV Elena Conti - PDF (Deutsch)
Search among the members of the Leopoldina for experts in specific fields or research topics. After entering a name in the "Name" field, click on "Search" to go directly to a member profile. With the input and selection in the fields "City" and „Country", you can limit your search locally or regionally, or target specific sections of the Leopoldina. Alternatively or in combination a full-text search is possible for all member profiles - use the upper input field. The use of operators like AND, NOT or * is permitted in the full-text search. For example, you may search for "genetics" or "*genet*" to get results with "genetic" or "molecular genetics". For a new search please click on the following link or use the full-text search in the right column.
Elena Conti’s research interests lay in the molecular mechanisms that govern the transport of RNAs from their site of synthesis to their site of function, and its connection to RNA surveillance and degradation. Conti’s group studies the molecular mechanisms of these basic cellular processes at the atomic level using X-ray crystallography in combination with biochemical/biophysical methods. Her group has determined the atomic structures of key macromolecular complexes including the RNA export factor complexes, the exon junction complex and the exosome complex, which she continues to study.
