Ron Lab Home Page
Our lab is part of University of Cambridge Institute of Metabolic Science, Metabolic Research Laboratory on the Addenbrooke's site in Cambridge, UK.
We are located on the fifth floor of the IMS building. Our complete mailing address, lab phone and fax numbers are available at this link. A map showing our location on the Addenbrooke's site is available here and suggestions how to negotiate the perilious 25 yards from the taxi drop-off point to the lab are provided at this link.
The lab is directed by David Ron and has been in operation since September 1992. Today the lab is focused on the study of cellular adaptations to the stress of malfolded proteins.
Our lab gratefully acknowledges the support of various funding agencies.
This site provides links to lab personnel (both present and past). From here you can browse our collection of plasmids (available free of charge to colleagues worldwide), download publications, or protocols from the lab and read various commentaries. If you are a PhD, or MB/PhD student looking for a rotation, you are welcome to sit in on our lab meeting(s), a schedule of which is posted in the column on the left.
