Are you new to the topic of programmable protein delivery using futuristic bacteria? Or are you a seasoned researcher interested in the latest developments in the field? Join us this week for an in-depth discussion on the cutting-edge research that harnesses the futuristic capabilities of bacteria for targeted protein delivery!


Scientists have recently discovered a type of bacteria that has the capability to deliver therapeutic proteins directly into eukaryotic cells. This is achieved through a syringe-like structure called the extracellular contractile injection system (eCIS), which has been found to target mouse cells. This discovery opens up new possibilities for the targeted delivery of therapeutic proteins in the treatment of various diseases.


During the CIC Journal Club, we’ll explore the implications, limitations, and all other facets of this exciting research. This session is open to everyone who is interested in the latest developments in the Life Sciences field, regardless of their scientific background. Join us to engage in thought-provoking discussion and learn from your peers. Don’t miss out on this opportunity!

Join us for Open Journal Club

A collaboration with CIC Labs and Venture Café, an in-person monthly discussion series that tackles the most recent research papers in the Life Sciences. Our goal is to bring together various perspectives to leverage our collective expertise to advance discoveries and knowledge in the Life Sciences.
