DHFR measurements

Dr. Joseph Knab

PhD Conferred: 
2007
Former Position: 

Dr. Katherine (Niessen) Lindberg

PhD Conferred: 
2017 February
Former Position: 
Research Project and Activities: 
Protein Correlation Modes Measured using THz Microscopy: Using a THz microscope I measured the large-scale vibrational modes of protein crystal samples. Specifically, I am studied how these modes change with binding and how those changes are related to function. Graduate student research in terahertz optical spectroscopy. Developing and improving optical measurement techniques, specifically terahertz microscopy, of protein vibrations. Performed simulations to model expected experimental results.

PhD Conferred: 
2017
Former Position: 
Research Project and Activities: 
My research involved protein resilience and fluorescent protein resistance to photobleaching, and the correlated protein motion measurements of dihydrofolate reductase crystals.

Jesse Barber

Masters Graduation Date: 
2020 September
Former Position: 
Research Project and Activities: 
Molecular Dynamics Calculations. Used the programming tools Prody, Pymol and Python to model protein crystal structure. These were used to predict the structure and compare the analysis to crystals measured using THz Spectroscopy
