Center for Protein Folding Machinery

The Center for Protein Folding Machinery has been established to define the basic chemical and physical principles used by molecular chaperones in the folding of proteins through a variety of interdisciplinary approaches. From this knowledge base, we aim to engineer protein machines that can assist in the folding of any protein of interest, as well as develop strategies to alleviative or prevent protein misfolding associated with a number of human diseases.
