DeGrado receives Protein Society’s Stein and Moore Award

William DeGrado, PhD, faculty member in the School’s Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, has been named the 2015 recipient of The Protein Society’s Stein and Moore Award.

Ajay Jain, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on computational methods for improving drug discovery. I was formally trained as a computer scientist and made a transition from applied defense research to the biomedical arena in a series of Bay Area startups.

James Fraser, PhD

Associate Professor

I am a biophysicist. My research is focused on discovering the macromolecular structure and dynamics of proteins—defining conformational states essential for function and understanding transitions between these states.

Tanja Kortemme, PhD

Professor

My research seeks to invent approaches to engineer new biological functions at multiple scales, ranging from atomic details to macromolecular machines to cellular processes. By building new functions through a combination of computational design and experimental engineering, I also hope to learn...

Tack Kuntz, PhD

Professor Emeritus

Since retiring, I serve as a consultant for current Department faculty.

Matt Jacobson, PhD

Department Chair and Professor

Research in my lab focuses on atomic-level mechanisms of protein regulation, protein-ligand interactions, and computer-aided drug design. My approach is to employ physics-based energy models for predictive protein modeling. Projects in my lab combine algorithm development and biological...

Tom Ferrin, PhD

Professor

My lab develops software tool for visualizing and analyzing molecular
structures at scales ranging from the atomic to the supramolecular.

 

William DeGrado, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on small molecule and protein design as an approach to understanding macromolecule structure and function.

Andrej Sali, PhD

Associate Dean and Professor

I am interested in the structure, function, and evolution of proteins and their assemblies. As Associate Dean of Research, I advise the dean and School leaders on research issues and opportunities and represent the School to campus research decision makers and on research-related campus committees.
