Protein encoded diversity of genetically indentical cells

The goal of our research is to explain how dynamic alterations in protein folding and assembly states regulate the phenotypic plasticity of cells and organisms. This information is highly relevant for the understanding of fundamental biological processes ranging from development to adaptation and aging, and has implications for a number of diseases, including neurodegeneration and cancer.
