Structural Biology Faculty
Our research focuses on determining the structures and interactions of macromolecules by ion mobility / mass spectrometry.
In our laboratory we bring together skills in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, membrane and computational biophysics, and biomathematics.
The Li research group focuses on discovery and structural characterization of the biochemical processes associated with ribosome synthesis and CRISPR-Cas immunity.
The principle that guides my research is that biological macromolecules are chemicals and biological processes are chemical processes; we should be able to understand them...
Our research consists of the continuing development of new theory, techniques, and analytical/biological/environmental applications of Fourier transform ion cyclotron resonance (FT-ICR) mass spectrometry.
The Miller research group investigates the origin, evolution and regulation of biological catalysts.
The Sang research team investigates biomarkers and biochemical mechanisms of stem cell differentiation and tissue engineering, cancer metabolism, angiogenesis, progression, invasion, and metastasis.
The Silvers lab focusses on understanding how proteins and RNA interact on a molecular level using NMR spectroscopy and how this interaction mediates function and disease-related dysfunction.
Our research interest is in the development and application of state-of-art multi-spectrum atomistic simulation techniques to understand the hidden nature of complex biological phenomena.
