Ernst Lab

 Protein Engineering Group



Head: Dr. Andreas Ernst

Our long term research goals are to understand how proteins interact with their binding partners in the cellular environment and harness these interactions to modulate cellular responses in healthy or diseased cells. To achieve these goals we engineer the molecular details of protein interaction interfaces using a structure-guided protein design approach and phage display. We apply this approach to evaluate intracellular protein interactions for therapeutic use and to explore new avenues in the treatment of cancer and other diseases. We are looking anytime for motivated students and post-docs who would like to join our team here at the IBCII. We provide a state-of-the-art phage display lab in a strong cell biology environment. If you are interested please send us your cover letter, CV and short description of your research interest.
