Areas of Research

Our department makes significant contributions to research in many areas of structural biology.

Our research informs the starting points for better drug design, identifying new classes of anti-tumor agents, ways to fight opportunistic infections in AIDS patients, combating inflammation in arthritis and cardiovascular disease, and preventing bronchial infections in cystic fibrosis patients.
