Fraser appointed to Bowes Biomedical Investigator Program

Fraser developed several new tools for creating maps of macromolecules, a critical first step for finding new drugs.

James Fraser named Searle Scholar, will shine new light on protein shapeshifting

Biophysicist James Fraser, PhD, has been named a 2014 Searle Scholar. His laboratory will be awarded $300,000 in funding over the next three years to support his research into more accurately and precisely describing the ways that protein molecules change shape to carry out the functions of life in our bodies.

Fraser
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.
