Complete understanding of the functional properties and possibilities of biological macromolecules depends on knowing their three-dimensional structures. With this motivation, our research focuses on analyzing and predicting protein structures in biologically relevant conditions, and establishing structure function relationships in membrane and soluble proteins. We use a wide variety of investigative techniques including chemical and molecular genetic modification of protein structure, mass spectrometry, and computational methods. Follow the links below for each faculty member to discover more thorough descriptions of our research programs.
