Biochemistry and Biophysics

The following labs within the Molecular Medicine department incorporate biochemistry and biophysics into their research:

  • Cerione Lab: Mechanisms of signal transduction by growth factors
  • Chappie Lab: Structure and function of nucleotide-powered molecular machines and protein-nucleic acid complexes
  • Collins Lab: Small GTPase regulation of intracellular traffic and cellular growth control
  • Kawate Lab: Structures and mechanics of membrane proteins that regulate extracellular signaling
  • Linder Lab: Regulation of cell signaling by protein lipidation
  • Sardana Lab: Membrane protein trafficking and quality control mechanisms 
  • Sevier Lab: Signaling of cellular oxidative stress; molecular mechanisms used by cellular pathways that sense and signal redox imbalances within the cell
