Folder Prof. Dr. N. Pfanner
(Executive Director Institute of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology and Director of Biochemistry I) investigates the mechanisms of protein sorting and folding in the cell, in particular the targeting and assembly of mitochondrial proteins.
Folder Prof. Dr. S. Rospert
(Director of Biochemistry II) identifies and characterizes proteins associating with ribosoms and investigates their interactions with newly synthesized polypeptide chains.
