Research into Biomedical Applications

Biomedical applications drive all aspects of our methods development efforts. We do this through collaborations with biomedical scientists, and through primary biomedical research within the CCSB. We also have a strong commitment to biomedical education and outreach, using CCSB tools to disseminate the results of biomedical research to diverse audiences.

As part of the HIVE Center, we are studying HIV and its interaction with host cells throughout the viral life cycle.

In collaboration with Barry Sharpless, we are designing specific covalent inhibitors and applying them to multiple biomedical targets.

Working with PDB-101, the outreach/education portal of the RCSB Protein Data Bank, we produce many materials and resources for use in education and outreach.
