The Carnegie Institution for Science was started in 1902 (originally named the Carnegie Institution of Washington) as an organization for scientific discovery. Today, there are six scientific departments on the West and East Coasts. MPT is privileged to work with the The Department of Embryology, located in Baltimore, MD. The Department of Embryology has become recognized worldwide as one of the premier research centers in cellular, developmental and genetic biology. The department has a unique atmosphere and research style that has allowed a small enterprise to have a disproportionately large impact on science. They revere this atmosphere as their source of inspiration and strive to further improve it as the department evolves within the current milieu of intensive activity, investment and opportunity in the biological sciences.
Over the years The Kostova Lab has gained detailed knowledge of ribosome structure, function, and biogenesis; however, a major unanswered question in the translation field is how cells monitor the integrity of the ribosome itself.
