Accepting new students?
Yes
Research Interests:
protein structure-function, antiviral proteins, virulence factors, biosynthetic enzymes

We investigate biological function and mechanism at the molecular level by developing a structure-based understanding of proteins and macromolecular complexes. The lab studies biosynthetic pathways for natural products, proteins of pathogenic viruses, and host proteins that defend against viral pathogens.
