Achim Werner: Stem Cell Biochemistry Unit

Overview of research

Our Goal

We use biochemistry, proteomics, human embryonic stem cell (hESC) culture, and human genetics to study how stem cells utilize the posttranslational modifier ubiquitin to determine cell-fate choices during development. In particular, we focus on cell-fate decisions involved in neural crest, neuronal, and hematopoietic differentiation and whose mis-regulation lead to congenital diseases of impaired brain and craniofacial development or autoinflammation.
