The home of the WrappER
a wrapping-type of Endoplasmic Reticulum
We are a group of talented cellular and molecular biologists who want to understand how inter-organelle contacts regulate lipid biology in health & disease.
We discovered the wrappER, a wrapping-type of rough-ER that wraps around most of the mitochondria and peroxisomes of the hepatocyte, the main cell of the liver.
