Roberto Galletto’s lab is working on the roles of DNA helicases in maintaining telomere structure.


2015 Biophysical Society Fellow

Tim Lohman

Congratulations to Timothy Lohman. Dr. Lohman is being honored for his pioneering biophysical studies of the mechanisms and energetics of protein-DNA interactions, including the enzymology and kinetic mechanisms of DNA helicases and translocases, and single stranded DNA binding proteins. The awards ceremony will be held at the Biophysical Society’s 59th Annual Meeting in February 2015.
