Kenan Distinguished Professor, Chemistry
Biochemistry and Biophysics
Area of Interest
Researchers in the Redinbo Laboratory use the tools of structural, molecular and chemical biology to examine a range of dynamic cellular processes central to human health.
Current projects include the discovery of new antimicrobials targeted to drug-resistant bacteria, the design of novel proteins engineered to detect and eliminate toxic chemicals, and the development of small-molecule to cell-based methods to improve anticancer chemotherapeutics.
We also continue our focus on determining the crystal structures of macromolecular complexes, including those involving human nuclear receptors central to transcriptional regulation, bacterial proteins involved in DNA manipulation and human cell contact, and enzymes central to key cellular processes.
