Research in Synthetic Biology and Biological Design emphasizes elucidating engineering principles behind biological systems for creating novel therapeutics and biomaterials.
Managing her own synthetic biology project helped graduate student Jesse Tordoff overcome imposter syndrome and hit her stride.
Researchers have devised a faster, more efficient way to design custom peptides and perturb protein-protein interactions.
New 3-D imaging technique can reveal, much more quickly than other methods, how neurons connect throughout the brain.
Researchers develop a method to investigate how bacteria respond to starvation and to identify which proteins bind to the "magic spot" - ppGpp.
New approach generates a wider variety of protein sequences optimized to bind to drug targets.
Designing synthetic proteins that can act as drugs for cancer or other diseases can be a tedious process: It generally involves creating a library of millions of proteins, then screening the library to find proteins that bind the correct target.
