Jeroen Roelofs


Jeroen Roelofs received his Ph.D. (Cum Laude) from the University of Groningen, where he studied cGMP signalling and chemotaxis of Dictyostelium Discoideum. During his postdoctoral work in the Lab of Dan Finley at Harvard Medical School he studied the ubiquitin-proteasome system and discovered a role of several molecular chaperones in the assembly of the proteasome in S.Cerevisiae and human tissue culture cells. Since 2009 he runs his own lab at Kansas State University, where his lab studies proteasome assembly and regulation at the molecular and cellular level in yeast and mammalian tissue culture systems. Recent interests include quality control of assembly and the degradation of proteasomes through autophagy.
