The mission of the Laboratory of Structural Biology (LSB) is to provide insights into biological processes that modulate the effects of environmental exposures on human health. To accomplish this, the LSB investigates the following topics:
The research performed by LSB members requires an integrated approach wherein X-ray crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry and computational chemistry are combined with biochemical and genetic approaches. Thomas A. Kunkel, Ph.D., is the Laboratory Chief of the LSB.
