Elsa (re-) joined our lab as PhD student and she managed to obtain a LaCaixa INPhINIT PhD fellowship. Congratulations Elsa and welcome back!


The first reconstitution of a mammalian mRNA transport system done by Sebastian Bauman is online:

In the movie below we see beta2B-tubulin RNA (red) transported by a reconstituted APC-kinesin-2 complex on microtubules (grey). The lower panel shows single-particle tracking of the transported RNAs (circle color around spots: total spot intensity). We used intensity measurements to show that one kinesin transports dimeric APC which binds one RNA per APC monomer.



Stay tuned for news on the first reconstituted axonal mRNA transport system


We are looking for PhD students to work with systems and biochemical approaches to understand how RBPs work together and how neurons can generate their mRNA distribution patterns. Please check out the Jobs-Section. And apply through CRG’s PhD Fellowship programme.


Our new paper describing two new matrix screening techniques is out !

We can now do many cool things as simultaneous interaction-domain determination and many-by-many protein-RNA interaction screening!




Julia Grawenhoff got a Severo-Ochoa FPI PhD fellowship to join our lab in spring 2018. Welcome Julia !



Sebastian Baumann got a Juan de la Cierva postdoc fellowship to continue his promising work in our lab. Congratulations Sebastian!


Artem joined the lab. He won a LaCaixa-PhD fellowship and he will focus on developing ex-vivo tools to understand mRNP dynamics and function. Welcome, Artem !
