Title: Assistant Professor
College: Medicine
School / Department: Biochemistry
Mentoring Philosophy:

Our lab is motivated by a common cause to understand how life works at the atomic scale. All cells depend on a healthy balance of protein synthesis, folding, trafficking, and turnover. We specialize in using cryo-EM to visualize these processes. Our efforts to resolve mechanisms underlying protein homeostasis will teach us the principles of how cells stay healthy and how the breakdown of these processes cause human disease.
