Matthias Hinterndorfer, an IMP alumnus from the lab of Johannes Zuber, received the 2022 Denise P. Barlow Award for his outstanding doctoral thesis. During his time at the IMP, he developed a new screening approach to studying gene function and networks in mammalian cells. On top of that, Matthias uncovered the structure and role of AKIRIN2, a protein that facilitates the import of the proteasome into the cell nucleus. He is now a postdoctoral researcher at the Research Center for Molecular Medicine (CeMM).
