Mechanisms of DNA repair and DNA replication
The Protein Signaling Program uses cutting-edge methodologies to illuminate how proteins communicate and work together to protect cellular DNA from harmful changes.
The Protein Signaling Program studies and manipulates individual protein signaling processes using advanced microscopy and other state-of-the-art molecular technologies. This allows the program to zoom in on specific cellular processes and visualise how proteins move around over time, how they interact and affect genome maintenance.
This enables a detailed molecular understanding of diseases such as cancer and paves the way for improved treatment of patients.
Professor Niels Mailand is Research Director of the Protein Signaling Program. The program has four research groups.
