My lab is interested in understanding the mechanism of large-scale protein polymerization. Protein misfolding can lead to polymerization and we are focused on studies of how polyglutamine sequences and dipeptide repeat sequences can induce such misfolding leading to aggregation and disease. We are also interested in applying protein design to create polymers for use in biomaterials for applications in nanotechnology.

Our lab is also primarily responsible for managing the Beckman ProteomeLab XL-A Analytical Ultracentrifuge in the KINSC Instrument Core Facility.
