Please join eLife on Monday December 8 (4pm GMT) to hear from the authors of three promising studies on the link between gut bacteria and arthritis, the structure of a receptor playing a key role in development, and a diagnostic tool capable of distinguishing between different types of enteric fever.
New eLife 'Hangout On Air 'showcases outstanding papers and their early-career authors
These studies were published in eLife and selected by eLife’s editors for “eLife-sponsored presentations” at a scientific meeting of the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, Max Planck Society, or the Wellcome Trust. The presentations feature the pre-tenure author and are a great opportunity for early-career scientists to participate in prestigious scientific gatherings in their fields.
- Stephen Baker, Wellcome Trust Major Overseas Programme, Oxford University Clinical Research Unit (UK), “Fitness benefits in fluoroquinolone-resistant Salmonella Typhi in the absence of antimicrobial pressure”
- Rajat Rohatgi, Division of Oncology, Stanford School of Medicine (USA), “Structure and function of the Smoothened extracellular domain in vertebrate Hedgehog signaling”
- Curtis Huttenhower, Department of Biostatistics, Harvard School of Public Health, “Expansion of intestinal Prevotella copri correlates with enhanced susceptibility to arthritis”
