George Lisi

Assistant Professor of Molecular Biology, Cell Biology and Biochemistry

Biography

The Lisi laboratory utilizes solution NMR methods along with techniques in biochemistry, biophysics, and molecular biology to interrogate changes in protein structure and conformational motions that underlie function. We are especially focused on enzyme complexes, aiming to understand how biological events such as protein-protein interaction or the binding of allosteric effectors and drug-like molecules modulate functionally relevant protein motions, intra- and intermolecular signaling, and/or catalytic reactivity.
