Structural disorder and Molecular Recognition


Sonia LONGHI is Director of Research at the Center for the National Scientific Research (CNRS). She is the head of the "Structural Disorder and Molecular Recognition" group within the AFMB laboratory, Marseille. She obtained a PhD in molecular biology from the Universitá degli Studi of Milan in 1993. She got a HDR in structural virology from the University of Aix-Marseille I in 2003. Her scientific focus is on intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) and the mechanistic and functional aspects of the interactions they establish with partners. To date, she has authored 103 scientific publications and edited a book on measles virus nucleoprotein. She also co-edited (with Prof. Vladimir Uversky) a book on the experimental approaches to characterize IDPs and a book on structural disorder within viral proteins(Wiley).
