Structural Biology

Division Chief: Kristen Parent

Vision: By revealing the structure of the basic components of living systems we can better design and develop novel systems with reporters and controls of biology.

Mission: To refine our understanding of fundamental biological structures and the changes that occur through interactions among these structures.

Approach: CryoEM and NMR are providing new insights into biological structures and we use these to reveal the nature of biomolecules alone or in complex with other structures.
