Taking a bite out of the proteome with PhaNGS

If DNA is the blueprint for every cell in the body, then proteins are the cell’s construction workers, forklifts, and building materials.

Jim Wells, PhD

Professor

My research focuses on developing enabling technologies for protein engineering and drug discovery to understand biology and pave roads to therapeutics.

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.
