Mark van Goor, theme Renal disorders, received the Radboudumc Master Prize for his MSc thesis entitled “High-resolution structure of the renal calcium channel TRPV5 revealed with cryo-EM”, which was based on his internship at the lab of Prof. Yifan Cheng, University of California San Francisco (USA).During this internship, Mark was involved in resolving the 3D structure of TRPV5 by cryo-electron microscopy. The Master Prize committee praised his work based on outstanding performance, critical evaluation and a well-structured report. Moreover, it resulted in a recent publication in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, where Mark is co-author. During the award ceremony, Mark gave an engaging presentation explaining his work in layman’s terms.
He is now invited to attend the Opening of Academic Year on 2 September, where he will receive the Radboud University prize as best Radboudumc Msc thesis of the study year 2017-2018.
Mark is currently pursuing his interest in structural biology within his PhD research project at the department of Physiology, where he aims to unravel the molecular building blocks of renal sodium channels in an effort to structurally characterize diuretic-binding and diuretic activity modulation.
