Judith Frydman is a professor in the Biology Department at Stanford University. She majored in chemistry and received her PhD from the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina. She carried out her postdoctoral training with Ulrich Hartl at the Sloan Kettering Institute in New York, where she discovered the eukaryotic chaperonin TRiC and investigated the basic principles of how proteins fold following translation in eukaryotic cells. Her research program aims to understanding the biological mechanisms controlling cellular protein folding, aggregation and quality control and the relationship of these mechanisms to the genesis of proteotoxic diseases.
Her research interests include Extubation failure in pediatric population, Non- invasive ventilation in children, ARDS: ventilatory strategies.
