Mrs. George A. Winzer Professor in Medicine
Current Research and Scholarly Interests We study the regulation of transcription, the first step in gene expression. The main lines of our work are 1) reconstitution of the process with more than 50 pure proteins and mechanistic analysis, 2) structure determination of the 50 protein complex at atomic resolution, and 3) studies of chromatin remodelling, required for transcription of the DNA template in living cells

Current Research and Scholarly Interests I am interested in the molecular mechanisms that regulate mitochondrial dynamics. I am using rationally-designed peptide inhibitors to target mitochondrial fission/fusion factors in order to understand the interplay between these factors under normal and stressed cellular conditions.
