Scientific Career

Prof. Feige (*1979) pursues an interdisciplinary approach to address fundamental questions in cellular protein biochemistry: how do cells control that the proteins they produce are correctly structured? How is it ensured that defective proteins are recognized and degraded instead of having potentially harmful effects on the organism? Which molecules and mechanisms underlie this molecular quality control? For these questions, the laboratory of Prof. Feige focusses on medically relevant proteins of the human immune and nervous system so that insights into the principles of cellular quality control can ultimately be translated into new biomedical and biotechnological applications.

Professor Feige studied biochemistry at ETH Zurich and TUM, from where he received his doctorate in 2009. After working as a postdoctoral research fellow in the laboratory of Professor Linda Hendershot at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, USA, he was appointed as a Rudolf Mößbauer Tenure Track Assistant Professor of Cellular Protein Biochemistry at the TUM Department of Chemistry in 2014.
