Faculty with expertise in X-ray crystallography, electron microscopy, and spectroscopy investigate protein structure, folding, and interactions in order to help define disease mechanisms and develop new therapies.
- Other faculty members employ modern genetics and genomic technologies to generate a broader understanding of cellular pathways and systems biology. We use a number of different model systems, including mice, flies and single—celled organisms to model disease processes and development.
- Areas of focus in the Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from Upstate Medical University SUNY include structures and function of membrane transporters, DNA replication and repair, transcription and epigenetics, mitochondrial biology, and cellular responses to stress. These studies are relevant for many human diseases, including cancer, neurodegeneration, and infectious diseases.
