Understanding the Chaperone Code 

Screen Shot 2020-08-20 at 9.43.16 AM.png

Our laboratory is centered on understanding the post-translational modifications of the Hsp70 molecular chaperone protein, with an emphasis on understanding this "chaperone code" in human disease.


Our group is multidisciplinary, integrating biochemistry, biophysics, structural biology and proteomics. We study these chaperone dynamics in a range of systems including bacteria, budding yeast and in cancer cell lines.
