Research in the Tang Laboratory at UChicago

I've loved biology all my school career and being a part of a larger project has always been a dream of mine. Through cold calling, I made contact with the Tang Laboratory at UChicago where I have taken on a position under a grad student researching protein structure and function. My research involves looking at the ECE-1 protein and figuring out how I can characterize it's motion through computer simulations and then determine mutation sites where we can modify this protein to target a specific substrate that will help lower blood pressure in patients. It's been an amazing journey thus far and I can't wait to progress through this experience!
