The lab is interested in understanding the connection between atomic resolution structure and function of biological molecules, especially proteins and protein complexes. Proteins of specific interest include those that are involved in sugar uptake, sugar metabolism, glycosylation and nucleotide sugar transport from bacteria, parasites and their hosts. Sugars are well known as an energy source, but they play a variety of roles including regulation of molecular and cellular function and cell-cell communication.

The other interest in the laboratory is understanding the role of mono-nuclear iron centers in catalyzing difficult chemical reactions in biology."
