Welcome to the Dötsch Lab!

Our goal at the Dötsch Lab is to contribute to the understanding of biological structure, function and interaction at a molecular level. For this purpose, we utilize a wide range of biological, chemical and physical state-of-the-art techniques such as NMR, cell culture, cell-free protein production, genetic engineering, FPLC, high-throughput robotics, chemical labelling, and many more.

Among our main concerns are the characterization of the transcription factor p63, homolog of the famous tumor suppressor protein p53, the investigation of membrane proteins and the study of the molecular basis for autophagy.

The Dötsch Lab also takes a keen interest in the sound education of young scientists and therefore provides many high-level classes for our students.

Thank you for coming by our website. Please feel free to browse our research projects or contact us for more information.
