About our lab
Our lab uses the tools of protein and peptide engineering to improve the understanding and treatment of human disease. We use both rational design and directed evolution to engineer proteins and peptides, giving us a powerful set of molecular tools. We are currently focused on developing methods for studying, treating, and diagnosing infections caused by Candida albicans (the most common fungal pathogen in humans, see image below) and for studying proteins important in cancer.
