Recent and future grand challenges in protein folding, misfolding, and degradation


Our general aim is to better understand the biophysical and biochemical principles that govern nascent or stress-destabilized proteins to unfold and re/fold to their native state or, alternatively, choose to misfold and aggregate into cytotoxic species, which in animals can cause degenerative diseases.
