Welcome to the Kuemmel Lab!

We are moving to the Institute of Biochemistry at the WWU Münster in early 2018.

In our group, we are interested in the coordination, regulation and crosstalk between intracellular transport and signal transduction.
Our focus is on the structural investigation of proteins involved in these processes. We combine x-ray crystallography with biophysical and biochemical methods to visualize the structure of proteins on an atomic level and explain their function.
Furthermore, a detailed understanding of protein structure allows us to investigate the role of these proteins under physiological and pathological conditions.
