Unravelling the mechanisms of macromolecule trafficking
Research team leader: Dr Monika Murcha
I am a molecular cell biologist within the School of Molecular Sciences. My lab uses a range of molecular and biochemical techniques to determine the function and regulation of vital cellular processes such as organelle biogenesis, protein targeting and more recently the assembly of mitochondrial complexomes.
