Research Summary/In Plain Language

Research in Plain Language

Proteins are made in the cell by a large molecular complex called the ribosome. Our research is aimed at understanding how the ribosome works, particularly the cases where it makes proteins that are not normally produced in cells. A better understanding of these processes is important for understanding how cells resist infection and avoid becoming cancerous.
