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 cases where it makes proteins that are not normally produced in cells. Such situations are very important for understanding how cells resist infection and avoid becoming cancerous.
