Areas of Interest

     
Allaire, Mark Brookhaven National Lab application of synchrotron-based techniques for chemical genetics and to study the structure and function of proteins
     
Boon, Elizabeth Chemistry Nitric oxide signaling in bacteria.
     
Bowen, Mark Physiology & Biophysics Single molecule spectroscopy; Coordination of post-synaptic glutamate receptor signaling by the MAGUK family of scaffolds
     
Brown, Deborah Biochemistry and Cell Biology The Brown lab studies caveolin-1 and other caveolar proteins, to understand how their interactions with each other and with the membrane and cytoskeleton are important in function in normal and cancer cells.
     
Czaplinski, Kevin Biochemistry and Cell Biology Post-transcriptional control of gene expression in the nervous system
     
de los Santos, Carlos Pharmacology Research in our laboratory focuses on the determination of the solution structure DNA molecules damaged by endogenous and exogenous agents, and to establish structure-function relationships relating to mutagenesis and DNA repair.
     
Carrico, Isaac Chemistry The research in our group centers around the concept of chemical biology. In paticular, we introduce unnatural monomers into the biopolymers of life (proteins, oligosaccharides, oligonucleotides) for the purpose of tracking or perturbing biological processes.
     
Deutsch, Dale Biochemistry and Cell Biology Marijuana; molecular neurobiology of anandamide
     
French, Jarrod B. Biochemistry and Cell Biology Structure and function of protein complexes involved in cellular metabolism
     
Fu, Dax Brookhaven National Lab We seek to understand chemical principles governing selective binding and energized movement of zinc ions in membrane transporters.
     
Gao, Liang Chemistry Super-resolution fluorescence microscopy, 3D live fluorescence imaging and quantitative analysis of 3D image data sets
     
Garcia-Diaz, Miguel Pharmacology Deficiencies in mitochondrial gene expression cause multiple human pathologies. Our lab combines structural, genetic and biochemical studies to understand the mechanism and function of proteins that are key for mitochondrial protein production, and investigate how the alteration of different gene expression processes can result in mitochondrial disfuction and disease.
     
Gergen, Peter Biochemistry and Cell Biology Regulation of gene expression during Drosophila development
     
Green, David Applied Math & Statistics How can macromolecular interactions be engineered in a rational manner to have the desired effects in a complex environment, such as a living organism?
