FOCUS on RESEARCH
Linda Pike's lab is working on mechanism of action of growth factors; polyphosphoinositide metabolism.
Elliot Elson's lab is working on dynamics and equilibrium of interactions of molecules in cells and model systems.
Carl Frieden's lab is working on protein folding, aggregation, intrinsically disordered proteins, fluorescence methods and fluorine NMR.
Peter Burgers' lab is working on the biochemistry and genetics of yeast DNA replication and repair.
Greg Bowman's lab combines computer simulation and biochemical experiments to understand the role of proteins' conformational heterogeneity in antibiotic resistance and vision.
Roberto Galletto's lab is working on the roles of DNA helicases in maintaining telomere structure.
Tom Ellenberger's lab is working on nucleic enzymology, structural biology, macromolecular interactions and molecular recognition.
Kathleen Hall's lab is working on NMR and biochemical studies of RNA and RNA-protein complexes.
Timothy Lohman's lab is working on equilibria and kinetics of DNA-protein interactions; DNA motor proteins (helicases) and helix destabilizing proteins.
James Janetka's lab is working on medicinal chemistry, combinatorial and parallel synthesis and chemical biology.
Weikai Li's lab is working on structural and biochemical studies of membrane proteins supporting blood coagulation.
The Department welcomes Dr. Michael Greenberg, who started as an Assistant Professor on August 1. The Greenberg lab focuses on the generation and transduction of forces by molecular motors, with an emphasis on human disease. The lab uses an array of biochemical, biophysical, and cell biological techniques to probe the function and regulation of these motors over a range of scales that extends from single molecules to tissues. Currently, the lab is studying the molecular basis of heart failure.
