Welcome to the Protein Biology Group (PBG) website
The Protein Biology Group (PBG) is part of the Section for Biomolecular Sciences and is composed of four subgroups with a common interest in protein structure-function relationships. Our aim is to bridge quantitative protein chemistry and cell biology by strong research within the fields of protein folding, protein-protein interactions and protein quality control in the cell. The overriding themes in our research portfolio are:
- Proteasome-mediated protein degradation
- Structure-function relationships of transcription factors
- Protein interaction and calorimetry
- Disulfide bond reactions in the eukaryotic cytosol and endoplasmic reticulum
- Protein Design
The PBG is characterized by numerous collaborations between the individual PI’s and the sharing of equipment and facilities. The close teamwork is further nourished by bi-weekly seminars with both internal and external speakers and coworkers. We have close ties to a number of domestic and international collaborators in both academia and the industry.
