The functionality of nearly any biomedical system can be traced down to an intricate and complex system of interacting molecules, operating under chemical and physical principles, that ultimately drives biological phenomena, from the microscale to the macroscale. And this is the approach that we take as we seek to develop solutions to relevant issues in modern medicine that have not yet been fully resolved - protein folding disorders, mechanisms of cell signaling, pathogen antibiotic resistance, enzymatic catalysis, just to name a few. Our research collaborations are driven by these pressing questions in molecular and cell biology, and are tackled from both computational and empirical grounds. We see tremendous potential in the parallel usage of tools from biochemistry/structural biology, computational modeling, and organic chemistry in developing new knowledge of the molecular systems that drive human health. We seek aspiring biomedical researchers who are unafraid to tackle intellectually challenging problems with enthusiasm, curiosity, and creativity to push forwards the limits of molecular medicine. We hope you will join us this summer in #ASDRP2020.
What We Do
Biomedical research is interdisciplinary - we are huge fans of combining the best techniques and approaches across the life sciences towards understanding some of the most pressing issues in molecular medicine today.
