Dynamics of cellular proteome
Each cell must keep millions of protein molecules properly functional and avoid accumulating damaged proteins. Our group uses tools ranging from genetics to quantitative mass spectrometry and mathematical modelling to understand how cells maintain functionality of their proteomes.

Focus areas:
  • analysis of protein interactions
  • methods to analyse temporal changes in multi-protein complexes
  • investigating dynamics of the proteostasis network
  • analysis of nuclear pore complex biogenesis

Permanent staff
Associate Professor, group leader
Evgeny's main tasks include design of research projects, supervision of students and teaching. But he spends free-of-duty time working at bench to advance our knowledge of how cells make and break protein complexes.
PhD, Lab engineer
Ann Kristin helps with experiments, takes care of midnight freezer alarms, manages project students and negotiates best deals with vendors. In other words, Ann Kristin does everything except for the research project design and attracting funding.
