Ábris Bendes‘’Hailing from Hungary as a biochemical engineer and a structural biologist, I am working in Finland as a PhD student, elucidating the unique motility of the malaria parasite. I am particularly interested in the emerging state-of-the-art structural biology methods and their application towards pathogenic systems.

My research visit to the Structural Biology Research Center at the Nagoya University in Japan was a very fruitful experience. The aim of my stay was to pave the road to a collaborative project and to attain hands-on experience in the field of cryo-EM using the specialised techniques of the host group. During my visit I had the opportunity to work together with outstanding experts in my field, gaining useful scientific insight and networking opportunities that will prove invaluable for my future in science.”
