Research Summary

We apply tools of structural biology, biophysics, biochemistry, molecular biology and bio-computing to an understanding of the mechanisms of BSE, TSE and other diseases of protein misfolding.

Misfolded prions cause a variety of fatal neurodegenerative diseases in both animals and humans.
