My research is centered on studying the structure/function relationships of proteins. We use a variety of techniques to accomplish this goal and the research spans the fields of molecular biology, biochemistry and biophysics. Typically, proteins in bacterial systems are cloned and expressed, recombinant proteins are purified and characterized, conditions suitable for crystallization are identified, and then the structure of the crystallized protein is solved. The variety of techniques used provides plenty of opportunities for undergraduates to learn techniques that they will need in whatever post-baccalaureate path they choose.
