Mitotic mechanisms and regulation in the Nilsson Group

The Nilsson lab focuses on understanding short linear motifs as specificity determinants for PTM modifying enzymes. The focus is on discovery and characterization through integration of biophysics and biochemistry and extending these discoveries to cellular pathways with a focus on cell cycle and cell division.

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.
