How proteins find their destination
Nov 29, 2007The Institute of Molecular Biology and Biotechnology of FORTH participates in the effort to understand a fundamental biological problem: How do cells regulate trafficking of their proteins? Some of the research results are presented in a recent publication in Cell, one of the most authoritative international scientific journals. They stem from intercontinental cooperation between the research teams of Ch. Kalodimou, Assistant Professor at Rutgers University and that of T. Economou, IMBB researcher and Associate Professor at the Biology Department of the University of Crete.
