As biochemists and molecular geneticists, we are in the midst of an unprecedented time of discovery - our conception of the molecular biology of cells is going from the equivalent of grainy black-and-white to high-resolution technicolor. From deciphering the choreography of transcription complexes, chromosomes and RNA molecules within cells to developing novel approaches to 3D molecular structure determination to understanding how viruses hijack a cell’s machinery and alter its metabolome, the researchers in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics (BMG) are at the forefronts of their fields both conceptually and technologically.
Maximal synergy and depth of thinking require an open, vibrant research environment in which people of all backgrounds thrive. We are passionately devoted to enhancing diversity and upholding uncompromised equity and anti-racism. These principles, along with the close proximity of BMG to other outstanding basic and clinical departments as well as several hospitals, vastly enhance our opportunities for collaboration and translation of paradigm-shifting basic discoveries to the clinic and beyond.
Quentin Vicens (Research Asst. Prof.) and Jeffrey Kieft were awarded an NIH R21 from NIAID to study xrRNAs in the alphavirus supergroup. Congratulations!
November 2020Angelo D’Alessandro’s COVID-19 red blood cell research was highlighted in the CU Anschutz Medical Campus news - “Attack on Red Blood Cells a Prime Suspect in COVID’s Debilitating Effects”
November 2020Welcome to BMG, Casey Greene! Dr. Greene will be the Director of the new Center for Health Artificial Intelligence and Chair of the Department of Biomedical Informatics, both of which will be forming over the next year.
Travis Nemkov’s (postdoc D'Alessandro lab) recent publication was highlighted in the CU Anschutz Medical Campus news - “Metabolomics: The Science Behind a Tour de France Winner”
Angelo D’Alessandro’s recent publication on the cover of Small was highlighted in Technology Networks - “New Technology Diagnoses Sickle Cell Disease in Record Time”
Dick Davis lab’s recent publication was highlighted in the Sept. 2020 issue of Cell Current Biology - "Genomes: Programmed DNA Elimination in a Parasitic Nematode"
Congrats to Lena Steckelberg from the Kieft lab on joining the faculty of Columbia University Med Center Biochemistry and Mol. Biophysics Dept.!
