Multi-disciplinary, collaborative research

My research ethos is characterized by working with friends, colleagues, and peers to establish effective networks that allow us to tackle challenging problems from many angles. I like to believe that the researchers with whom I collaborate are recognized for their collegiality, scientific excellence, and integrity as much as they are often also known for their amiable, fun-loving characters. 🙂

At any given time my group participates in a large number of research collaborations – too many to enumerate and pay tribute to below. Nevertheless, here you will find some details of my research teams and networks, along with shout-outs to my longest running collaborators. As you may appreciate, although we bring our strengths in e.g. protein biochemistry and proteomics to bear in our collaborations, the research we participate in spans a wide variety of different topics in cell biology and biomedicine.

We expect to have openings at the research technician and post-doctoral levels in both NYC and Groningen in 2019 – contact me if you’re a team player and interested.

Groningen, NL, and Europe

We’ve opened doors on a new lab at the European Research Institute for the Biology of Aging. Watch this space; updates as things develop.

Within Europe, my research team has its longest-running collaboration with Prof. Torben Heick Jensen. More recently, we have established exciting new projects with Dr. Jose Garcia-Perez. More coming soon!

New York City and North America

My research team at The Rockefeller University is embedded within the Laboratory of Cellular and Structural Biology, headed by Prof. Michael Rout, and we maintain a tight and long running collaborative synergy with our colleagues in the Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry and Gaseous Ion Chemistry, headed by Prof. Brian Chait. Our combined groups at The Rockefeller are part of a larger research consortium: the National Center for Dynamic Interactome Research.

In addition, we maintain equally tight and rewarding research collaborations with our colleagues at the Institute for Systems Genetics, including Profs. Jef Boeke and David Fenyö, among others, at NYU Langone Health – located about 30 blocks south of us, in Manhattan.

Other important, long-running collaborations include Dr. Martin Taylor (currently a member of the Sabatini lab at MIT), Prof. Kathleen Burns, Prof. Philippe Gros, and Dr. Lluis Morey.


Our close collaborators in Russia include Ilya Altukhov and Dr. Dmitry Alexeev.
