Emil Gregersen is new PhD student in Jensen Group

Emil Gregersen started as a PhD student in Poul Henning Jensen's group per March 1st 2017. Emil will work with the endoplasmic reticulum anchored deubiquitinase USP19 which has a key role in targeting misfolded proteins including α-syn for secretion under proteasomal stress. Preliminary data suggest aggregated α-syn as a target of USP19 and this project will aim to study the role of USP19 in the excretion and cytotoxicity of α-syn and the possible contribution to the prion-like spreading of α-syn pathology.
