Andrea Ablasser

Andrea Ablasser

Andrea Ablasser’s research aims to understand how the cells of our immune system detect the presence of pathogens and to dissect the fundamental mechanisms that provide host defense.

Lyndon Emsley

Lyndon Emsley

Lyndon Emsley’s main research field is solid-state NMR spectroscopy, specifically the development of new spectroscopic methods for the determination the atomic-level structure, the dynamics and the reactivity of a wide range of materials and molecular systems, that have been inaccessible with other analytical methods.

Bruno Correia

Bruno Correia

Bruno Correia lab is driven by the passion of expanding nature’s repertoire by designing novel functional proteins to be used for practical purposes such as therapeutics, vaccines, biosensors and others. An innovative research from a new field called immunoengineering.

Anne-Claude Gavin

Anne-Claude Gavin

Pioneering in the development of novel (bio)chemical methods to map cellular protein-lipid interaction networks, the Gavin group has a strong research interest in the study of lipid metabolism and the regulation of cellular membranes homeostasis, with a special focus on the machinery involved in the creation and maintenance of lipid gradients in eukaryotic cells, and the study of mechanisms by which lipid signatures are sensed and “read” by effector proteins.

Sascha Hoogendoorn

Sascha Hoogendoorn

Sascha Hoogendoorn lab aims to study and perturb cellular signalling, with a particular interest in the primary cilium and the Hedgehog signalling pathway. Her research combines organic chemistry with cell biology and CRISPR/Cas9-based gene editing to develop molecules that enable further dissection and manipulation of ciliary signalling.

Charlotte Aumeier

Charlotte Aumeier

The Aumeier lab explores the biochemistry and biophysics of the cytoskeleton. Her research addresses questions around how the cytoskeleton is organised and regulated in space and time, resulting in functional architecture.

Yimon Aye

Yimon Aye

Yimon Aye’s research focuses on electrophilic signalling mechanisms which affect proteins function and the control of genome replication and allow the modulation of various biological processes, including cell ageing, cell decay, immune reactions and the protection of genetic material.

Karsten Kruse

Karsten Kruse

Karsten Kruse lab studies the formation of spatial and temporal structures in individual biological cells and cell assemblies such as the cytoskeleton of eucaryotic cells and the Min-system in Escherichia coli, by using use methods from non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and non-linear dynamics.

Jérôme Waser

Jérôme Waser

Jérôme Waser is an assistant professor at EPFL and head of the Laboratory of Catalysis and Organic Synthesis (LCSO). His research is focused on the discovery of new catalytic reactions and their application to the synthesis of bioactive compounds.

Gisou van der Goot

Gisou van der Goot

Gisou van der Goot is a professor at the Global Health Institute of EPFL. Her research interests are focused on protein folding, protein-membrane interactions and signaling which her lab investigates through the study of bacterial toxins and their receptors on target cells.
