IBC2 group leader Christian Münch was recently admitted as a member to the JQ Young Academy. Within the "Science funding" program of JQYA, Christian will now receive financial support for his independent research group until October 2023. The Münch group is deciphering quality responses upon mitochondrial protein misfolding, a field with very high biomedical impact. Misfolding of mitochondrial proteins occurs e.g. as part of neurodegeneration, and little is known about how cellular response mechanisms contribute to the onset of respective diseases and their progression. The JQYA is an independent academy within Goethe University which foster researchers at the start of their independent careers.
