Prof. Jacob GeriMapping the sequences of protein interactions that drive disease phenotypes is a critical step towards drug discovery efforts. However, the transient and environmentally responsive nature of crucial disease-promoting protein interactions can make them difficult to discover. Work in the Geri lab focuses on the development and application of optically controlled proximity labeling technologies designed to discover protein interactions with high spatial and temporal specificity. This work is highly multidisciplinary and collaborative, employing techniques from photochemistry, organic and inorganic synthesis, and molecular biology to address questions in biology.
