Welcome to the CingolaniLab
My lab uses biophysical, biochemical, and cellular techniques to study the structure and function of biological macromolecules. We employ rigorous chemical and physical methodologies to solve medically relevant problems that help to decipher the most fundamental mechanisms of life and contribute to improving human health.
General research areas include protein nuclear import, viral genome delivery, bacteriophage structure and function, and bacterial virulence factors.
We are located on the 7th floor of the Shelby building in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB).
