FOCUS on RESEARCH
Dr. Greg Bowman's lab combines computer simulation and biochemical experiments to understand the role of proteins' conformational heterogeneity in antibiotic resistance and vision.
Dr. Weikai Li's lab is working on structural and biochemical studies of membrane proteins supporting blood coagulation.
Dr. John Cooper’s lab studies molecular mechanisms of cell motility and cytoskeleton assembly.
Dr. Roberto Galletto's lab is working on the roles of DNA helicases in maintaining telomere structure.
Dr. Tom Ellenberger's lab is working on nucleic enzymology, structural biology, macromolecular interactions and molecular recognition.
Dr. Michael Greenberg's lab focuses on generation and transduction of forces by molecular motors, with an emphasis on human disease.
Dr. Timothy Lohman's lab is working on equilibria and kinetics of DNA-protein interactions; DNA motor proteins (helicases) and helix destabilizing proteins.
Dr. Carl Frieden's lab is working on protein folding, aggregation, intrinsically disordered proteins, fluorescence methods and fluorine NMR.
Dr. Peter Burgers' lab is working on the biochemistry and genetics of yeast DNA replication and repair.
Dr. James Janetka's lab is working on medicinal chemistry, combinatorial and parallel synthesis and chemical biology.
Dr. Eric Galburt’s lab focuses on the use of single molecule biophysical approaches to study mechanistic aspects of eukaryotic transcription by RNA polymerase II and cotranscriptional RNA folding.
Dr. Linda Pike's lab is working on mechanism of action of growth factors; polyphosphoinositide metabolism.
Dr. Kathleen Hall's lab is working on NMR and biochemical studies of RNA and RNA-protein complexes.

On July 11, 2016, Dr. Linda Pike was installed as the Alumni Endowed Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics. The Installation was held in the Eric P. Newman Education Center. Dean David Perlmutter and Dr. John Cooper presided over the installation ceremony. After the opening remarks and installation Dr. Pike presented a seminar entitled “Parsley, Sage, Rosemary, and Thyme: The Fine ErbBs.”

Maxwell Zimmerman, Computational & Molecular Biophysics student in the laboratory of Dr. Greg Bowman, has been selected as a 2016-2017 CBSE Graduate Student Scholar. Maxwell was recognized for the early promise he has shown in the development of novel sampling algorithms that are aiding feature-based sampling of high dimensional conformational spaces.
Maxwell has also been selected as a three year Monsanto Fellow which will allow him a unique opportunity to interact with Monsanto scientists in a variety of venues.
