Former PhD student, now joint postdoc with the Hyman lab
Sonja studies how RNP granules such as P bodies and stress granules form in budding yeast. She is using live cell imaging and reconstitution techniques to study the material properties of these bodies in vivo and in vitro.
Shova is studying the dynamics of RNP granules by using biophysical approaches. She is particularly interested in the role of RNA in regulating the dynamics of RNP granules.
Former PhD student, now postdoc
Lili is interested in understanding how Dictyostelium discoideum is controlling its highly misfolding-prone Q/N-rich proteome. Her focus is primarily on the protein quality control system as well as on the question of how aggregation-prone proteins such as prions are induced, maintained and spatially distributed in Dictyostelium.
Former PhD student, now joint postdoc with Vasily Zaburdaev lab (MPI-PKS)
Matthias is studying dormancy in different eukaryotic model organisms. He is using genetically encoded viral particles to probe the material properties of the cytoplasm through particle tracking approaches.
Elli is investigating a set of proteins that form reversible assemblies upon nutritional and environmental stress. She is interested in understanding their function as well as the mechanisms by which they assemble.
Daniel is studying the interaction of RNP granules with misfolded proteins and the role of the protein quality control machinery in this process.
Chrissy is interested in studying the phase behavior of prion-like RNA-binding proteins in vitro.
Andrii is reconstituting the phase behavior of disease-causing RNA-binding proteins in vitro. He is particularly interested in the question of how patient mutations modify the phase behavior of these proteins.
Technician and lab manager
As the lab manager Doris is interested in all sorts of things and she is trying to keep things running smoothly in the lab. She is also doing most of the cloning in the lab.
Ivana investigated a metabolic enzyme that reversibly forms filaments upon nutritional stress.
William investigated how nutritional cues modulate the folding and holding functions of chaperones.
Gayathrie purified a metabolic enzyme from E. coli and reconstituted its filament-forming abilities in vitro.
Sandra investigated the ability of computationally predicted prion-like sequences from Dictyostelium to form amyloids and prions.
Alessandro investigated a new system for studying protein-protein interactions in cells based on a viral capsid protein.
