Paul DeCaen

Paul DeCaen

Affiliation(s): Pharmacology

Paul.DeCaen@northwestern.edu
Lab Website

The DeCaen lab addresses the molecular and biophysical determinants ion channel disregulation in the disease state, and endeavor to characterize new ion channels and determine their context in cell physiology.
Daniel Foltz

Daniel Foltz

Affiliation(s): Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics

dfoltz@northwestern.edu
Lab Website

The Foltz lab is broadly interested in epigenetic inheritance, and how histone chaperones and histone posttranslational modifications contribute to identification and inheritance of epigenetic domains within chromatin. We seek to understand the basic mechanistic steps involved in the process of epigenetic inheritance of centromeres.
Douglas Freymann

Douglas Freymann

Affiliation(s): Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics; DGP, NUIN

freymann@northwestern.edu
Lab Website

The Freymann lab studies GTPase structure & function, GTPase-mediated assembly of the SRP targeting complex, and ultra-high resolution protein structure-function.

Alfred George

Alfred George

Affiliation(s): Pharmacology

al.george@northwestern.edu

The George lab studies the mechanisms by which ion channels mutations cause a variety of inherited disorders of membrane excitability including congenital cardiac arrhythmia, susceptibility, and epilepsy.
Neha Kamat

Neha Kamat

Affiliation(s): Biomedial Engineering, IBiS

nkamat@northwestern.edu
Lab Website

The Kamat lab studies artificial cell/protocell models, membrane biophysics, emergent behaviors from synthetic membranes, and membrane stress-sensing.

Neil Kelleher

Neil Kelleher

Affiliation(s): Chemistry, IBiS

n-kelleher@northwestern.edu
Lab Website

The Kelleher lab studies enzymology of natural product biosynthesis, mass spectrometric-based studies of the "Histone Code," and development of Fourier Transform Mass Spectrometry (FTMS) for Top Down Proteomics.

Keith Tyo

Keith Tyo

Affiliation(s): Chemical and Biological Engineering, IBiS

k-tyo@northwestern.edu
