Structural biology and single-molecule studies of Antiphospholipid Syndrome
Through a variety of state-of-the-art biochemical and biophysical methods, our lab studies the dynamic personalities of proteins involved in Antiphospholipid Syndrome, such as thiol-oxidoreductases, complement, and clotting factors. Our goals are to:
1) Visualize such proteins as they perform their physiological functions in real-time
2) Define how antiphospholipid antibodies alter these functions
We ultimately employ this knowledge of protein dynamics to design novel compounds or biologics to better treat and diagnose APS.
