We are interested in investigating the structural basis for recognition and regulation of biologically and medically important macromolecules, mainly using crystallographic techniques in combination with other biochemical and biophysical approaches. Specifically, my current interest is focused on the structural elucidation of the protein-protein interactions or protein-RNA interactions involved in epigenetic regulation of gene expression.
