Laboratory of Animal Molecular Physiology

A new proteostasis mechanism for the removal of protein aggregates and damaged mitochondria has recently been described. Within this process, cellular waste material is ejected from the cell via large (…)

Tomasz W. Turowski, PhD

Laboratory of Transcription Mechanisms

We are interested in understanding how the biophysics of transcription affects gene regulation. Our goal is to apply this knowledge to problems such as SARS-CoV-2 transcription and RNA polymerase III‑related (…)
