We study how protein synthesis is regulated using interdisciplinary approaches including structural biology (x-ray crystallography and single particle cryo-EM), biochemistry, and molecular biology. We are excited about how RNA-protein interactions and stress control the ribosome, a large macromolecular machine that produces all proteins in every living organism.
Major projects include understanding how the ribosome maintains the three
