Multi-disciplinary, collaborative research

Our 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. We believe that the researchers with whom we 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 our group participates in a large number of collaborations – too many to enumerate and pay tribute to below. Nevertheless, here you will find some details of our network along with shout-outs to long running collaborators. As you may appreciate, although we bring our strengths in e.g. biochemistry and interactomics to bear in our collaborations, the research we participate in spans a wide variety of different topics in cell biology and biomedicine.

Groningen, NL, and Europe

In summer of 2019, we opened doors on a new lab at the European Research Institute for the Biology of Aging. We have numerous connections to other labs across the continent, running since before our arrival in NL. After arriving in NL we opened several new projects with local colleagues at the UMCG and RUG, we advanced our international collaboration with Dr. Adnan Halim (University of Copenhagen), and we have two commercial collaborations running: one with Refeyn Ltd. (Oxford, UK), and one with Ribon Therapeutics Inc. (Cambridge, MA).

New York City and North America

Our 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 long running collaborative synergy with our colleagues in the Laboratory of Mass Spectrometry and Gaseous Ion Chemistry, headed by Prof. Brian Chait. The combined groups at The Rockefeller are part of a larger research consortium: the National Center for Dynamic Interactome Research.

In addition, we have productive and rewarding research collaborations with Dr. Benjamin Greenbaum at MSKCC (effectively across the street), and with our colleagues at NYU Langone Health, Institute for Systems Genetics, including Profs. Jef Boeke and David Fenyö  – located about 30 blocks south of us, in Manhattan.

Other important, collaborations include Dr. Martin Taylor (MGH), Prof. John Sedivy (Brown University), Prof. Kathleen Burns (Dana-Faber Cancer Institute), Prof. Philippe Gros (McGill University), and Prof. Tomas Mustelin (University of Washington).
