Wilson Research Group

Nature’s principal machinery – proteins – offers great promise toward the future development of useful biological electronic devices, novel therapeutics and conditional enzymatic function. The Wilson group at Yale seeks to engineer novel, non-natural proteins of tailored function for high impact applications — while advancing our fundamental knowledge of protein structure function relationships. Protein engineering applies the fundamental principles of biophysics and biochemistry toward design, and is best achieved through an integrated experimental / computational framework. These studies represent the most rigorous test of our understanding of the structure function relationship; in addition to, promoting the development of novel biological tools that will benefit society.
