Back-to-Class Program: Chaperoning Protein Aggregation Diseases

Kathryn McMenimen ’03, assistant professor of chemistry 

There are approximately 30,000 proteins in the human genome that must be produced and managed properly for cells to function effectively. Protein aggregation arises from the accumulation of misfolded and partially denatured proteins, often resulting in disease. We are interested in understanding part of the quality control network that prevents protein aggregation from occurring. Additional projects in the lab are aimed toward developing potential therapeutics to rescue misfolded and aggregated proteins. 

Open to all alumnae, students and guests.
