Our research groups
We use molecular biology to answer questions in basic and applied research. Biochemical processes studied range from protein synthesis and folding to ribozyme catalysis. Medical problems under investigation include amyloid formation, antibiotic resistance, tuberculosis and malaria. We are also developing biotechnology and synthetic biology.
The molecular biology program is lead by Professor Suparna Sanyal and consists of five research groups. For more information on research projects, click on the websites of these groups.
- Chattopadhyaya, Jyoti, professor emeritus - RNA-directed therapeutics and diagnostics
- Ehrenberg, Måns, senior professor - protein synthesis - mechanisms to systems biology
- Forster, Anthony - Synthetic biology and protein synthesis
- Kirsebom, Leif - RNA catalysis and mycobacteria
- Sanyal, Suparna (program leader) - protein synthesis & protein folding - mechanisms, disease and biotechnology
