A team led by Caltech's André Hoelz has solved the architecture of the nuclear pore complex's complicated inner ring, a subcomplex that is central to the cellular machine's function. In the process, they disproved many previously held ideas about how the inner ring works.

Andre Hoelz, Assitant Professor of Biochemistry, has received the
