Bringing genomics into the fold

With a five-year, $1.95 million National Institutes of Health R35 grant, the Brandizzi Lab in the College of Natural Science is expanding its exploration of protein folding within plant cells, paving the way to more effective treatments of human diseases caused by misfolded proteins such as diabetes, Alzheimer’s and cancer.

Using advanced chemical genomics and gene network analyses, the team will characterize the signaling pathways of the endoplasmic reticulum that, among other things, monitors protein folding inside cells.
