Welcome to the Hashem Lab

Our research is focused on mRNA translation in eukaryotic pathogens and their hosts. We endeavor to understand the regulation of the translation process and decipher structurally, using CryoEM-electron microscopy (cryo-EM), its molecular basis and most importantly, the differences between eukaryotic pathogens and their mammalian hosts.

A must read in the ribosome-arresting peptides field, I'm not even in the field and I am reading it already! https://t.co/i8xnXONn3j
