Laboratory of Structural Cell Biology
My lab uses biophysical, biochemical and cellular techniques to study protein structure and function. Our long-term goal is to employ rigorous chemical and physical methodologies to study medically-relevant problems that help to decipher the most fundamental mechanisms of life and contribute to improving human health. General areas of research include protein nuclear import, architecture of viral genome ejection/packaging motors, dual specificity phosphatases and multi-subunits ATPases.
We are located at the 8th floor of the Bluemle Life Sciences Building, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Thomas Jefferson University, downtown Philadelphia.
