Postdoctoral Fellow
ER homeostasis during bacterial infection
I attained my Diploma in Biochemistry from Leibniz University in Hannover, Germany, and received my PhD in Cell Biology from ETH Zurich, Switzerland. During my PhD, I studied how selective autophagy re-establishes endoplasmic reticulum homeostasis after transient induction of the unfolded protein response. It has always captured my interest how intracellular pathogens subvert the host cell’s machineries to their advantage. As a joint Postdoc in the Mukherjee and Walter labs, I will now be studying how Legionella pneumophila modulates ER quality control and UPR signaling pathways. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, discovering the wonderful nature around and cooking with friends. Email: Julia.Noack@ucsf.edu
