Functional Amyloid as a Biological Tool

Created with Sketch. Prion like proteins can stick together and form aggregates Aggregates are generally thought to be harmful to some cells, but functional amyloid and engineered prions could be a useful tool in medicine, research, and manufacturing Functional amyloids are found in nature, however little is known about how proteins behave when they are in aggregates

We aim to enhance the function and better understand engineered proteins in aggregates
