    Moving Back to MSB!

    After spending 8 months at the Old Public Health Building, we're finally moving back to MSB, among the first wave of labs to reoccupy the building. There are bound to be some hiccups along the way, but it will definitely be nice to be back in our old space.

    NSMB Paper

    Our paper detailing the conserved structural regions of the V3 crown is now available from Nature Structural and Molecular Biology. It introduces 10 new anti-HIV antibody-V3 peptide structures done in our lab and defines 4 distinct regions of the third variable region (V3) loop that retain similar structural features.
