Regulation of DNA interstrand crosslink repair by ubiquitin. (ICLUb)

Start date: Sep 1, 2016, End date: Aug 31, 2021,

The overall objective of this proposal is to understand, on an atomic level, the mechanism of activation and regulation of the Fanconi Anemia (FA) DNA repair pathway. Homozygous mutations in the FA pathway lead to Fanconi Anemia, a devastating childhood genome instability disorder, typified by bone marrow failure and a high predisposition to cancers. The FA pathway is required for the repair of DN ...

T lymphocytes are key cells of the adaptive immune system that protect us against pathogens and malignant cells. T cell activation and differentiation are tightly controlled processes and deregulation can result in lymphomas, autoimmunity and inflammation. Hence, the biochemical events regulating lymphocyte biology have long been a topic of intense research, which has been focussed predominantly o ...

Real-TIME probing of Ultrafast Phenomena (UPTIME)

Start date: Jul 1, 2015, End date: Jun 30, 2020,

The perception of the world surrounding us depends on how we illuminate and capture it. For example, our direct observation of high-speed phenomena is limited by the speed of the human visual system. A well known method to visualize fast events is to capture them at very high frame rates with high-speed cameras, and then play the movie in slow-motion, enabling us to understand what happens at shor ...
