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 machines, multi-subunits ATPases, Mycobacterium tuberculosis virulence factors and disease-linked phosphatases.
We are located on the 4th floor of the Jefferson Alumni Hall, in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at Thomas Jefferson University, downtown Philadelphia.
