The Shaw Research Group
Research in the Shaw Laboratory occurs at the crossroads of chemistry, structural biology, proteomics and biophysics. One of our primary aims is to understand how changes in the electrostatic properties of a protein can accelerate its aggregation. The aggregation of certain proteins can cause human diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. We intend to apply our work in protein biophysics and protein chemistry towards the development of new classes of small molecules that can inhibit the aggregation of proteins.
