Research and teaching

Research activities

The goal of my lab is to understand how proteolytic post-translational modifications lead to the activation or inactivation of immune responses in inflammatory diseases. By the irreversible processing of bioactive proteins and signaling molecules, proteases modulate all aspects of biology. We focus on proteases and their substrates on a cell, tissue, or organism-wide scale.
