Structural cell biology: From atoms to cells.

For a better understanding of cellular processes, it is necessary to expand the scope of structural biology from the molecular functions of the isolated macromolecular assemblies to the concerted roles that such assemblies play in their cellular context. Our laboratory contributes to this efforst in several ways:

Research Areas:

  • Visual Proteomics
  • Cryo electron tomography image analysis
  • Structure determination of macromolecular assemblies
  • Structural characterization of the eukaryotic genome
  • Reaction-diffusion modeling of cellular processes
  • Nucleo-cytoplasmic protein transport through the nuclear pore complex
