Dr Stefan Emming

 

 

Postdoctoral Researcher, Inflammasome Lab

 

 

 

Stefan has a long-standing interest in trying to understand cellular processes at a detailed molecular level. He did his Master in Biochemistry in a Structural Biology lab, investigating the structure and function of the intracellular innate immune sensors AIM2 and STING. Following a short period at the Biozentrum in Basel (Switzerland), Stefan joined the Molecular Immunology lab of S. Monticelli at the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (Bellinzona, Switzerland) to conduct a PhD. After a deep dive into transcriptional and post-transcriptional regulation of gene expression in T cells during his PhD, Stefan joined the Inflammasome Lab in 2019 as a Postdoc. His research is focused on the multi-step mechanism of inflammasome activation and its regulation on a molecular level.
