Topics and Expertise: NMR spectroscopy

Helium recycling project sets a new standard for sustainability at UCSF

The School is now recycling much of the helium used in its NMR facilities.

Fragment-based discovery: using smaller molecules to solve larger challenges

To discover new drugs and chemical probes, researchers have traditionally screened small molecules—small enough by weight to pass through cell membranes.

John Gross, PhD


I am interested in protein structure and dynamics related to gene expression. We study changes in protein structure that occur on time scales ranging from millions of years to a millionth of a second, with a focus on basic questions of how viruses cross-species and give rise to modern pandemics...
