In addition to the faculty listed below, coordinated research projects between other faculty and the structural biology faculty are common and encouraged. Active research areas include studies of vitamin-B6 and folate-requiring enzymes, rational design of hemoglobin modulators, molecular model building structure-function studies, RNA structure studies, DNA and RNA-binding proteins, protein and nucleic acid methylases, lipoprotein structure, proteinase inhibitors, retroviral proteins, new antibiotic targets.
