Jenn attended the EMBO Practical Course–Measuring translation dynamics by ribosome profiling at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) in Heidelberg, Germany. March 26–April 1, 2023.

The participants included 18 PhD student and postdoctoral researchers and focused on protein synthesis, regulation mechanisms, and cutting-edge technology. Participants received a tour of the EMBL genomics core facility and learned more about fellowship training programs. This course emphasized lectures, practical wet lab work, bioinformatics training, and extensive networking opportunities. Individuals were able to discuss research opportunities and challenges in viruses, plants, invertebrates, mice, and patient derived cell lines. Jenn presented recent research on the expanded role of tRNA methyltransferase 9B (TRMT9B) in the central nervous system.
