Aug 2018: Cornelia Kilchert leads Emmy Noether research group

Cornelia Klichert has been selected as an Emmy Noether research group leader by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft, DFG. Her group will study the mechanisms of substrate selectivity of the nuclear RNA exosome complex and addresses the following questions: What factors are involved in exosome targeting? How is substrate selection regulated in response to external cues? Altogether she wants to understand better how post-transcriptional mechanisms shape gene expression programs that promote survival and determine cell fate.
