Hans-Georg Koch's picture Hans-Georg Koch
Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Protein Structure and Function

- Our work is focused on bacterial cell biology. By biochemical methods and molecular imaging approaches we explore targeting pathways of proteins and mRNAs, we determine how cells respond to stress conditions and how protein machineries are assembled.

Nora Vögtle's picture Nora Vögtle
Centre for Molecular Biology Heidelberg, University of Heidelberg
Protein Structure and Function

- Our group wants to understand the role of mitochondrial proteases in the maintenance of the mitochondrial proteome. We use yeast, mammalian and patient cells to investigate the pathophysiological consequences of dysfunctions in these proteases that result in severe neurodegenerative diseases and cardiomyopathies.
