Dr. Armache's Research Interest:  Mechanisms and functions of
ATP-dependent chromatin remodeling complexes and their place
in genome regulation  

Dr. Boal's Research Interest:  The study of the structural 
differences between members of largemetalloenzyme 
superfamilies that share common features but promote 
different reactionsor use distinct cofactors.  

Dr. Bollinger's Research Interest:  The understanding of the
relationship between the structures and catalytic mechanisms of
enzymes that employ such clusters, and to elucidate the
biochemical mechanisms by which the proteins acquire their
clusters.

Dr. Murakami's Research Interest:  We apply cryo-EM and X-ray
crystallography techniques to reveal three-dimensional structures 
of DNA and RNA polymerases for elucidating the mechanisms of
DNA replication and RNA transcription.    

Dr. Showalter's Research Interest:  The use of solution
nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, in combination
with thermodynamic analysis, chemical biology, and cellular
assays to advance understanding of protein function.    

Dr. Tan's Research Interest:  The understanding of how genes
are regulated by combining genetic, biochemical and structural
descriptions.    

Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and of Chemistry

Dr. Weinert's Research Interest:  The understanding of how
the globin coupled sensor protein family senses oxygen and
transmits the binding signal into downstream events.   

Dr. Yennewar's Research Interest:  Elucidating molecular
structures relevant to chemists, biochemists, material
scientists etc. and educating graduate students embarking
in these fields, the technique of X-ray diffraction (crystal
growth, data collection and structure solution and refinement,
and interpretation).
