  8. David Ron

    Cambridge University, United Kingdom

    David Ron is a Professor at Cambridge University. He directs a lab at the Cambridge Institute for Medical Research (CIMR) studying protein-folding homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum (ER). The lab uses biochemical, biophysical and cell-based tools to research both the molecular mechanisms that recognize the burden of unfolded proteins and thus initiate signalling in the ER unfolded protein response (UPR) and the downstream effector pathways by which cells adapt to unfolded protein stress in their ER. These effector mechanisms engage post-translational regulation of ER chaperone function, regulated translation of mRNA and transcriptional control of gene expression and thus interface with other cellular stress pathways.

    To eLife, David Ron brings scientific expertise in the study of the unfolded protein response, chaperone function and stress-induced regulation of mRNA translation and editorial experience from having served as an eLife Reviewing Editor since 2012.
