Our research groups

We study a wide range of fundamental biological processes ranging from protein synthesis, metal homeostasis, enzyme catalysis, and protein evolution to chaperone directed assembly of spider silk and other complex structures, and antibiotic resistance. We are also developing synthetic biology and new drugs to treat tuberculosis.

The program is led by professor Stefan Knight and today consists of four research groups. For further information about research projects and personnel, see the web pages of the individual research groups.
