A Special Research Program

Our Special Research Program, SFB F79, is funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) with contributions by the German Research Foundation (DFG). It is comprised of scientists from Max Perutz Labs, University of Vienna, Medical University of Vienna, CeMM, GMI, IMBA and IMP from Vienna as well as IMB in Mainz. We are joining forces to unravel how cells target proteins for degradation.
