Thomas James, PhD

Professor

I retired from full-time service at UCSF at the end of June, 2012. However, I went on Recall status a month later to do research, which diminishes each year. I needed to finish some projects that were still funded via grants during the initial year and continue with another funded project...

Matt Jacobson, PhD

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...

Bo Huang, PhD

Professor

I am interested in understanding how macromolecular interactions sets up subcellular compartments that control signaling and nuclear domains that regulate gene function. For this goal, I am developing new fluorescence microscopy techniques and engineering new protein and cellular tools, so that the...

Zev Gartner, PhD

Professor

My laboratory is working to understand how cells self-organize into tissues, how the structure of tissues help regulate cell behaviors, and how tissue structure breaks down in diseases like cancer. By understanding these processes we hope to reveal general principles contributing to cancer...

Tom Ferrin, PhD

Professor

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

Pamela England, PhD

Professor

Research in the England Lab is broadly focused on developing and applying chemical probes to investigate the structure and function of signaling proteins implicated in fundamental biological processes and human diseases. Execution of these research projects typically involves a combination of...

William DeGrado, PhD

Professor

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

Charles S. Craik, PhD

Professor

I focus on defining the roles and the mechanisms of enzymes in complex biological processes and on developing technologies to facilitate these studies to aid in the rapid detection, monitoring, and control of infectious disease and cancer.
