James Bardwell’s lab uses directed evolution to improve protein folding. They do this by asking organisms themselves to solve difficult protein-folding problems. By examining the solutions to these problems, they are better able to understand folding in the cell.
Listen to our former postdoc, Scott Horowitz, on NPR’s Marketplace Tech!!
We currently can finance visitors to the lab at all levels, interns, grad students, postdoctoral fellows, and sabbatical scholars. If someone you know might be interested in coming for 4 months or more to a fun, productive lab in beautiful Ann Arbor, please have them contact me. The Bardwell lab utilizes directed evolution; protein design; and a variety of cutting-edge structural, biological, and genetic approaches in the discovery and characterization of chaperones and to address human maladies, including phenylketonuria and nicotine dependence. The lab is innovative, friendly, well-funded and safely operating in a COVID aware fashion.
Successful candidates will have been trained in directed evolution or structural biology, or biochemistry or bacterial or yeast genetics.
