Laboratory of Structural Cell Biology



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 areas of research include protein nuclear import, viral genome ejection/packaging motors, multi-subunits ATPases and disease-linked phosphatases.
