Our work is to understand fundamental cell processes conserved through the kingdom of all self sustaining
life forms. In particular we focus on the cell cycle machinery as a crucial target of the many signaling
pathways that coordinate growth and development.
Our approach blends biochemical, small molecule, genetic approaches,high content microscopy, mass spectrometry and computational methods to decipher and predict how those processes work and how they are regulated by extracellular signals. Our people span the disciplines of synthetic biology, systems biology, chemical biology and microbiology.
Our vision. is to significantly contribute to drug design technologies that efficiently regulate cell processes and stay ahead of emerging diseases and drug resistancies. Understand the full complexity of the cell cycle and its components and regulatory mechanisms.
