Elena Czeslik joins the lab after completing her studies of pharmaceutical sciences here at LMU. Welcome Elena!

11/2022 Welcome Michael & Madleen

New undergraduate students Madleen and Michael join the lab. Michael is studying cellular proteostasis mechanisms and Madleen investigates cellular responses to metabolic rewiring. As an inaugural experiment, we already collectively tested the metabolic impact of consuming Madleen's famed cherry pie. Preliminary result: Omnomnom. Great to have you two around!

09/2022 - New Paper

A haploid genetic screen by Evelyn identifies the kinase NAGK as the missing link in bacterial cell wall detection by NOD2. Great collaboration with the Hornung lab! Read the full story at Nature.

07/2022 - New Paper

Check out the role of the OMA1-DELE1-HRI pathway discovered by Evelyn in the cellular response against protein misfolding in CHCHD10 mitochondrial myopathy. Great collaboration with the Narendra lab at the NIH. Full story available here.

07/2022 - BIF Hanna

Hanna is being awarded a prestigious PhD fellowship by Boehringer Ingelheim. She will investigate cellular proteostasis in the wake of mitochondrial dysfunction. Amazing news!

06/2022 - Krupp Award

We are being awarded the 2022 Krupp Award of the Alfried Krupp von Bohlen and Halbach Foundation. Fantastic news and welcome support in our quest to unlock mitochondria with functional genomics. Interested? Come join the ride here.
