At the Heart of Proteostasis: Harnessing Proteomics to Unravel Mechanisms of Cardiac Protein Quality Control

The maintenance of protein homeostasis (proteostasis) is fundamental to proteome stability and cell survival. From synthesis by the ribosome, to folding and maintenance by dozens of molecular chaperones, and finally degradation through the ubiquitin-proteasome system or autophagy, the life cycle of a protein is carefully regulated.

Visiting Research Specialist (Lab Technician) - Chicago, IL
Close Date

The Drew Lab is accepting applications for a highly motivated and ambitious Visiting Research Specialist (Lab Tech) interested in studying macromolecular assemblies. The research in the Drew Lab has several ongoing projects focused on the identification, characterization, and modulation of assembly activity. Most projects aim to understand general principles of assemblies, but we also aim to better understand the role assemblies play in specific diseases such as ciliopathies. We do this using high throughput proteomics, machine learning, and molecular modeling. Read the full posting here...
