Jason Kuhn

Columbus Lab Members Presents at the 59th Annual Meeting of the Biophysical Society

Four graduate students attended the 2015 Annual Biophysical Society Meeting in Baltimore on Febreuary 7-11.

Jennifer Martin presented a platform talk entitled Insights into the Specificity of Neisserial Opa Protein Interactions with Human Receptors.

Ashton Brock presented a poster entitled Systematic Perturbations of Micelle Properties to Investigate the Stabilization of Membrane Protein Structure and Function.

Marrissa Keiber presented a poster entitled Neisserial Opa Protein Dynamics and Interaction with Host CEACAM Receptors.

Jason Kuhn presented a poster entitled Interactions of Liposomal Opa Proteins with Human Cell Surface CEACAM Receptors.

Jason research focuses on the binding and uptake of Opa proteoliposomes into target cells expressing surface CEACAM receptors. He is interested in determining which cellular uptake mechanisms Opa proteoliposomes engage as well as their intracellular processing following cell entry. Liposomes are clinically useful for their ability to enhance therapeutic delivery of drug and imaging compounds to target cells, and Jason is particularly interested in exploring the potential of Opa proteoliposomes to target delivery to specific cell phenotypes.
