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
  • Oswald Lab:pharmacology and biophysics of neurotransmitter receptors; protein structure
  • Sevier Lab: signaling of cellular oxidative stress; molecular mechanisms used by cellular pathways that sense and signal redox imbalances within the cell
  • Sondermann Lab: Molecular mechanism and regulation of cellular signal transduction
