Work details

Research Scientist

Van Andel Institute
My research aims to elucidate the molecular basis of cell signaling through the use of biochemical and biophysical techniques, as well as structural biology methods including protein crystallography and electron microscopy. Specifically, I am focused on the study of proteins important in human health and disease, with a particular emphasis on leveraging recent advances in our understanding of cell signaling to develop new and better therapeutics
