Katrin Karbstein

Professor, Scripps Research Institute

Dr. Katrin Karbstein is Professor of Integrative Structural and Computational Biology at The Scripps Research Institute, Florida, and an HHMI Faculty Scholar. Her group uses a combination of approaches that include biochemistry, genetics, and structural biology to get insight into the function of individual factors involved in the maturation of the 40S ribosomal subunit and its quality control. Currently, her lab is interested in learning how defects in ribosome assembly can lead to diseases.
