Our group is interested in understanding extracellular signaling by examining molecular recognition events within protein signaling complexes as determined by x-ray crystallography. We utilize the tools of x-ray crystallography as well as molecular and cellular biology in order to dissect signaling events at the molecular level. In addition we extensively utilize other biophysical methods to monitor and characterize protein interactions including high-throughput small molecule screening assays.
