Lucas Pelkmans Lab
Research in the Pelkmans Laboratory covers a broad area of molecular cell biology in mammalian cells. In the past few years, it has taken a particular interest in the use of data-driven modeling of multivariate measurements obtained with quantitative single-cell imaging of large populations of cells to uncover mechanisms by which cells couple and coordinate their activities.
Berend Snijder obtained his Ph.D. in the laboratory of Lucas Pelkmans for research focusing on the quantitative single-cell analysis of population context-dependent cell-to-cell variability in RNAi screens of virus infection.
Ari Helenius lab
Work in the Helenius Lab focuses on the cell and molecular biology of interactions that occur between animal viruses and their host cells during the infectious cycle. For this, they apply state-of-the-art techniques such as time lapse microscopy, screening technology, virus-specific assays and others.
Urs Greber Lab
Research in the Greber Laboratory focuses on adenoviruses and rhinoviruses, two agents causing human respiratory disease. Human adenoviruses also elicit malignant cell transformations, and can emerge from latent stages in immune-compromised individuals, and engineered adenoviruses are used in clinical gene therapy trials.
