  • Summary Statement of Research Interests

    Our research aims to help bridge the gap between structural biology and physiology by pioneering new experimental and computational tools for multi-scale structural biology (atomic to cellular scales). A major focus in the lab is exploring how the beta cell regulates insulin hormone processing and maturation. Our approach to cell mapping utilizes a combination of chemical biology, multi-modal imaging, biophysical approaches, and computational modeling.
