Fields of Interest
- Cellular and Molecular Structure and Function
- Molecular Microbiology and Infectious Disease
Our research is focused on the study of: i) ER-resident glycosyltransferases and their role in protein folding and quality control, and ii) coronavirus-host cell receptor interactions. In all cases we seek to determine structure-function relationships using x-ray crystallography and complementary biochemical and cell-based approaches.
