We are focusing on understanding the molecular mechanisms that regulate intracellular RNA localization, translation, and stability and role of RNA-binding proteins and non-coding RNAs in this process. Our lab is located in the center of Berlin at the Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology (BIMSB), a part of the Max Delbrück Center for Molecular Medicine (MDC).

Our JPND consortium "localMND: Common architecture of local proteome, transcriptome and translatome across Motor Neuron disorders" has been funded! Check news and views article by Russ Hodge on the MDC website: https://www.mdc-berlin.de/news/news/red-thread-motor-neuron-disorders. Sadly 52.4% of the research funds are taken by the host institute for the overheads.
