Wanted: curious and enthusiastic human beings to solve the great mysteries of life:
• How do we live forever? Defeating neurodegeneration and aging?
• How are nanomachines formed in our cells?
• How ribosomes protect proteins from misfolding?
The lab is highly multidisciplinary, combing a variety of approaches Including:
Advanced genetics (Next- Generation Sequencing)
Biochemistry & Cell biology using yeast as a model organism and cell culture During the research you will gain experience in:
•Selective Ribosome Profiling – capturing the ribosomes engaged by target proteins, in codon resolution
•Advanced imaging, such as single molecule FISH for sub-cellular localization of mRNAs in the cell
•Developing novel techniques for single molecule capturing of protein-mRNA interactions
