Research Description

Our primary interest is in the mechanisms by which protein molecules accomplish their diverse biological tasks. Crystallography and molecular biology are the primary tools with which we probe into the structure-function relationships in complex proteins. There are two major themes in our work: structural biology of cytoskeletal regulation and the mechanism of hydrolytic enzymes, such as esterases and thioesterases.
