Manajit Hayer-Hartl, "Chaperone machineries for the biogenesis and metabolic repair of RuBisCO, the most abundant enzyme in nature"
Dr. Manajit Hayer-Hartl completed her PhD in Chemistry at the University Stirling,
UK 1984. Between 1984 and 1990 she held post-doctoral fellowships at the Louis Pasteur
Institute in Strasbourg, France, at the Ludwig-Maximilian University of Munich and
the Jules Stein Eye Institute, Los Angeles, USA. From 1991 to 1997, she did research
at the Sloan Kettering Institute, New York, USA. Subsequently, she was project group
leader at the Max-Planck-Institute of Biochemistry in Martinsried. Since 2006, she
is head of the research group
"Chaperonin-assisted Protein Folding” at the institute. She is interested in understanding the fundamental mechanisms of chaperone-assisted protein folding and assembly. Hayer-Hartl is an elected member of the European Molecular Biology Organization (EMBO).
