Krämer Lab

The goal of the Krämer Laboratory is to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate responses to diverse cellular stresses.

In this research, we focus on three specific topics: Autophagy and Neurodegeneration, AMPylation and Neurotransmitter Recycling, and Lysosomal Fusion and Immune Signaling.

Helmut Krämer, Ph.D.

In 1989, Dr. Krämer completed his Ph.D. at the University of Cologne, Germany, where he worked with Dr. Benno Mülller-Hill on DNA looping in the lac operon. As a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Dr. Larry Zipursky at UCLA, he studied cell-cell interactions during neuronal differentiation in the compound eye of Drosophila. In 1993, he joined UT Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas as an Assistant Professor in Cell Biology and Neuroscience.
