Martin Kampmann, PhD
Dr. Martin Kampmann is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics and the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases at the University of California, San Francisco. He and his lab are investigating how cells maintain their proteins in a functional and balanced state through a network of over 1,000 different factors called the proteostasis network. Their goal is to understand how this network functions, and how it is challenged and rewired in disease states, in particular cancer and neurodegenerative diseases. Their functional genomics platform, which integrates systematic genetic interaction maps and CRISPR-based approaches, enables them to elucidate dynamic networks and to pinpoint nodes that are potential therapeutic targets. Using biochemistry, biophysics and cell biology, they "zoom in" on individual nodes of the network to reveal their mechanism of action. UCSF Profiles Page for Martin Kampmann, PhDBack to the top...
