My research studies how the structure of proteins drives their function. Junior and senior students work with me on a variety of projects, including studying how to better break down plastics, the function of glucocorticoid and androgen receptors in the development of cancer, and identifying functions for proteins with a solved structure but no known function. I also lead a group of freshman and sophomore students designing three-dimensional models that provide hands-on tools for explaining interesting scientific discoveries (this year the students have chosen to focus on how bacterial infections persist via toxin/antitoxin systems). A highlight every year for these students is student presenting at a variety of scientific meetings, including the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology national meeting.
