A healthy proteome is critical for cellular function. Therefore, cells constantly monitor their protein-folding status and respond to physiological and environmental conditions that perturb the delicate balance between protein synthesis, folding and degradation. Protein-folding defects turn on stress response pathways that take corrective actions to restore homeostasis. In my lab, by combining innovative cell biology approaches with biophysical, biochemical and state-of-the-art
