Current Whitehead fellow David Pincus, will be joining the Department of Molecular Genetics and Cell Biology with a joint appointment in the Center for Physics of Evolving Systems, starting in January. His lab studies how cells sense stress using the budding yeast model organism. The Pincus lab will focus on protein misfolding, proteostasis and stress response signaling pathways using a multidisciplinary combination of systematic genetics (both classical and chemical), computational modeling, protein biochemistry and genomics.
