Functional interactions of dysfunctional proteins

Dr. Elizabeth Rhoades (University of Pennsylvania, USA)

Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry

Research in the Rhoades lab aims to elucidate the principles that link protein conformational change with structure-function relationships, focusing on understanding structural plasticity in intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs). IDPs do not form stable structures under physiological conditions; for many, function is dependent upon disorder.
