Research

Research in the Columbus laboratory focuses on investigating the biophysical driving forces that determine membrane protein stability, structure, dynamics, and interactions with lipids and other proteins. We utilize and develop many techniques to identify and quantify these forces.

We are particularly interested in bacterial membrane proteins that interact with host proteins or are novel antibiotic targets.
