FOCUS on RESEARCH
Elliot Elson's lab is working on dynamics and equilibrium of interactions of molecules in cells and model systems.
Carl Frieden's lab is working on protein folding, aggregation, intrinsically disordered proteins, fluorescence methods and fluorine NMR.
Peter Burgers' lab is working on the biochemistry and genetics of yeast DNA replication and repair.
Weikai Li's lab is working on structural and biochemical studies of membrane proteins supporting blood coagulation.
James Janetka's lab is working on medicinal chemistry, combinatorial and parallel synthesis and chemical biology.
Timothy Lohman's lab is working on equilibria and kinetics of DNA-protein interactions; DNA motor proteins (helicases) and helix destabilizing proteins.
Greg Bowman's lab combines computer simulation and biochemical experiments to understand the role of proteins' conformational heterogeneity in antibiotic resistance and vision.
Tom Ellenberger's lab is working on nucleic enzymology, structural biology, macromolecular interactions and molecular recognition.
Kathleen Hall's lab is working on NMR and biochemical studies of RNA and RNA-protein complexes.
Roberto Galletto's lab is working on the roles of DNA helicases in maintaining telomere structure.
Linda Pike's lab is working on mechanism of action of growth factors; polyphosphoinositide metabolism.
On June 5, 2015 the department held a Reception to unveil a portrait of Professor Carl Frieden. The reception was held to recognize Dr. Frieden’s accomplishments and service to our department, Washington University and the scientific community. More photos
Dr. Frieden is also featured in the Snapshots section of the June 15th issue of “The Record”. more photos
Tim Lohman spoke at a symposium honoring Pieter deHaseth on the occasion of Pieter’s retirement from Case Western Reserve University.
