Welcome to the CPB lab at the TUM!
Our laboratory aims to understand how cells control and maintain the integrity of their proteome. We are particularly interested in proteins of the secretory pathway - proteins that are ultimately secreted or localized on the cell surface and allow cells to interact with their environment. Using an interdisciplinary approach from protein biochemistry and engineering to mammalian cell biology we analyze the machinery and mechanisms that support and monitor cellular protein biogenesis. By focusing on proteins of immunological and biomedical relevance we seek a molecular understanding of fundamental biological processes and at the same time develop new approaches for protein engineering and human therapy.
