Our group wants to understand the molecular mechanism of signaling proteins and how small molecule ligands and drugs can modulate their activity.

We are focusing on two projects:

  1. -Solution dynamics of protein tyrosine kinases involved in cancer.

  1. -Substrate spectrum of ubiquitin ligases and conjugating enzymes in aging.

Interested in what we do?
