My lab is interested in understanding the mechanism of large-scale protein polymerization. Protein misfolding can lead to polymerization and we are interested in how polyglutamine repeats 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.
