Mitotic mechanisms and regulation in the Nilsson Group

The Nilsson lab focuses on understanding how protein phosphatases select their substrates and how they control processes related to genome integrity. We are focusing on serine/threonine phosphoprotein phosphatases that are essential enzymes controlling a vast number of signaling processes in the cell. We hope that our discoveries can lead to the development of specific inhibitors targeting these enzymes to expand future therapeutic options for human diseases.
