About Me

I am a research scientist in the field of disordered proteins. Disordered proteins and regions (IDPs/IDRs) are proteins or regions that do not form a well-defined three-dimensional structure. They play key roles in nearly every cellular process such as regulation, transcription and apoptosis. Mutations of IDPs are often associated with various diseases like cancer or Alzheimer's.
