Protein quality control is an essential cellular process that governs protein folding and degradation. Failure in the cell’s capacity to degrade aberrant proteins can lead to the formation of toxic protein aggregates that are associated with a number of human diseases such as Parkinson’s and Huntington’s. My research aims to identify factors and mechanisms responsible for cytosolic protein quality control using a combination of tools from cell biology and proteomics.
