Ron Lab Home Page
Our lab is part of University of Cambridge, Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) and is an affiliated member of the Institute of Metabolic Science on the Addenbrooke's site in Cambridge, UK.
We are located on level sixth of the Wellcome Trust/MRC building (CIMR). 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.
Directed by David Ron, the lab has been in operation since September 1992. It is focused on the study of cellular adaptations to the stress of unfolded and misfolded proteins in the secretory pathway (so called Endoplasmic Reticulum Stress).
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.
