The Feldbrügge lab is using in vivo approaches to study mRNA transport and local translation. We focus on the tight coupling between mRNA and membrane trafficking using endosomal long-distance transport along microtubules as an example.
Within the FOR2333 Research Unit we study:
Project 2: Here, we focus on novel factors interacting with the key RNA-binding protein of endosomal transport in order to identify functional important mRNP components. For this project we collaborate with the Jansen lab.
Michael Feldbrügge is Co-Speaker of the FOR2333 Research Unit.
