Our lab studies environmentally-switched protein/protein interaction domains about their natural regulation and understand how to artificially control them in vitro and in living cells. This is exemplified by our work on photosensors, parts of the hypoxia response, and others.

Oct 2014: The lab moved to New York City last month, establishing the Structural Biology Initiative of the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center. Kevin directs this new initiative, which will catalyze collaborations among biological and physical scientists in the CUNY system. Kevin has also joined the CCNY Dept. of Chemistry as part of this move.

Please note the new URL (kglab.org) for this site, which will update with new contact info, and find me by email with any questions or comments - Kevin Gardner, Oct 2014

"Finally, returning to the notion of a pseudo-phase transition of the side-chain-packing pattern in structure space at the twilight zone, it would appear that an hysteresis-like behavior is associated with the twilight zone in sequence space." (thanks to Andrew Lee [then of the Wand Lab at UPenn; now running his own group at UNC] for this great suggestion!)
