Michael Rosen, Ph.D.
Professor and Chair, Department of Biophysics
Mar Nell and F. Andrew Bell Distinguished Chair in Biochemistry
Ph.D., Organic Chemistry, Harvard University
B.S., Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Michigan
The Rosen Lab studies the physical mechanisms of actin regulation. We seek to understand both the structure and dynamics of individual pathway components and also how and why those components are organized into micron-scale cellular assemblies.
Elliot Ross, Ph.D.
Professor of Pharmacology
Greer Garson and E.E. Fogelson Distinguished Chair in Medical Research
Ph.D., Biochemistry, Cornell University
Dr. Ross' group studies how cells process information, particularly through heterotrimeric G proteins: the molecular mechanisms used to detect, sort, amplify, and convey information, and how these mechanisms are regulated to provide G protein signaling modules with adaptability and diversity.
