RamS Lab

The laboratory has a long-term interest in understanding the relationship between atomic resolution structures and molecular function. We use X-ray crystallography and electron cryo-microscopy as the primary structure determination tools. We are interested in a wide variety of enzymes and membrane transporters, from both a basic biology perspective as well in their relevance to disease and applications.
