Oren Rosenberg, MD, PhD

Associate Adjunct Professor

I am a physician-scientist who studies and treats infectious diseases. The goal of my laboratory is to discover and exploit molecular vulnerabilities in bacteria in order to design faster, cheaper, less toxic and more effective therapeutics to treat life-threatening infections.

Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics

We seek to understand molecular mechanisms of certain key biological processes, as well as signal transduction between processes at the level of protein structure, dynamics, and mechanism. Molecular cloning, expression, site-directed mutagenesis, and strong focus onto biochemistry are a key part of the arsenal for defining molecular mechanisms. We focus on the questions of how signals cross membranes, and how membrane proteins and membrane channels work at the level of atomic structure.

Allison Williams, PhD

Assistant Professor

Allison Williams is a self-described structural microbiologist, interested in the interacting networks of bacterial nanomachines and how they sustain life through cellular communication. She is primarily interested in the molecular details of signal transduction and the assembly of the cell wall, that is carried out by complex nanomachines in pathogenic microorganisms.
