Dr. Argon’s recent research focus on the induction of the unfolded protein response (UPR) during cell differentiation charts a full scientific circle, as he started his independent research program defining the UPR phenomenon. His research now focuses on the role of UPR in combating diseases like diabetes and growth retardation.
Much of Dr. Argon’s research program concerns the control of protein folding in the endoplasmic reticulum by molecular chaperone and the challenge of quality control of the secretory proteome.
