Our mission is to:
Our faculty share common research mission approaches to investigate structure-function relationships of biological macromolecules with significant medical relevance. Insight derived from macromolecular structure drives the generation of hypotheses that test:
In addition to their own individual research programs, our faculty are engaged in numerous collaborations with researchers in other departments within the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, as well as those from other schools campus-wide. These collaborations enhance and extend the scope of both basic and clinical research programs across the entire university.
The Department of Structural Biology is committed to promoting an open and welcoming environment where the value of diversity amongst its members is recognized as imperative for continued academic excellence. We aim to create an inclusive community of students, faculty, and staff that embraces, but is not limited to, diversity in race, ethnicity, nationality or place of origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, age, religion, language, abilities/disabilities, socioeconomic status, and veteran status. We will continue to make every effort in maintaining a supportive milieu in which differences are encouraged and respected.
