We are a young lab in the Bijvoet Centre for Biomolecular Research at Utrecht University. We are interested in the processes by which soluble, functional proteins misfold into non-native conformations and form aggregates, which are found in a wide range of diseases and during ageing. We use the roundworm C. elegans as a model to understand the molecular mechanisms of protein aggregation in a living and ageing organism.
