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

We’ve opened doors on a new lab at the European Research Institute for the Biology of Aging.

Within Europe, my research team has its longest-running collaboration with Prof. Torben Heick Jensen (Aarhus University, DK). More recently, we have established exciting new projects with Drs. Jose Garcia-Perez (University of Edinburgh, UK) and Adnan Halim (University of Copenhagen, DK).

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

Other important, long-running collaborations include Dr. Martin Taylor and Prof. David Sabatini (MIT), Prof. Kathleen Burns (Dana-Faber Cancer Institute), Prof. Philippe Gros (McGill University), Dr. Lluis Morey (University of Miami), and CDI laboratories Inc.; and we’ve recently formed a rapidly evolving research alliance with Prof. Tomas Mustelin (University of Washington).
