Cryo electron microscopy
of molecular machines
Welcome to our group!
We employ the method of cryo electron microscopy (cryoEM) to determine the structure and function of molecular machines and assemblies,
which form the very fabric of life.
Our research will provide important new insights into the inner workings of cells and also inform new ways to re-engineer biomolecules for novel applications in nanotechnology and drug delivery.
We join forces with the Gold Lab - our partner CryoEM lab at the
Living Systems Institute.
We are looking for a motivated PhD candidate to study how eukaryotic, intracellular parasites, called microsporidia infect human cells. The interdisciplinary project will involve cryoEM, complementary methods of high-resolution live-cell imaging, and mathematical modeling.
