Final things to highlight in the summer of 2023 are ones I'm particularly proud of, including anniversaries of the lab's founding 25 years ago in the Department of Biochemistry at UT Southwestern and joining the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center 10 years ago, plus receiving the Stein and Moore [...]
Congrats to Roksana Azad for an outstanding PhD defense talk and Q&A on Aug 24, wrapping up the work required for her Ph.D. in the GC Ph.D. Program in Biochemistry. With what is turning into the lab's magic mix of biophysical & biochemical approaches – HDX-MS / cryo-EM / [...]

In our latest J. Biol. Chem. paper, we share some of our latest findings from a fantastic team led by Igor Dikiy and Danielle Swingle, who investigated how strongly homology across related proteins really translates into fundamental aspects like regulatory mode and quaternary structure. Starting from bioinformatics searches looking [...]
Welcome to new postdoctoral researcher Soumendu Boral, joining us after getting his Ph.D. from IIT Kharagpur earlier this year with NMR-based studies of the structural and dynamic basis of protein splicing mediated by the Spl DnaX intein. Thrilled to have you join us here in New York! [...]
Congrats to Malvin Forson, a first year CUNY GC Biochemistry Ph.D. student in the lab, for being recently awarded a E. Olshansky Graduate Merit Award from the CCNY Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry! This merit-based award supports incoming graduate students with both support directly to them and the supporting laboratory. [...]
