Whether or not you know it you, right now, might be standing next to your next collaborator. I attended at talk this morning about work that came from a brief conversation I had at the BPS meeting in 2014. The talk was: “Effects of Lipid composition, peptide charge, and molecularity on the structure of antimicrobial peptide transmembrane pores”, presented by Almudena Pino Angeles in the group of Themis Lazaridis. I met members of their group back in 2014 and discussed simulations of various Melittin-based MAPs at a poster I was presenting. I was happy to see that they’ve done some fantastic work simulating pore stability! It just goes to show that you should never take any conversation for granted!
