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.

"Here, we explore this discrepancy by studying protein L, a protein previously studied by SAXS (at 5C), which suggested fixed unfolded-state dimensions from 1.4 to 5 M guanidine hydrochloride (GuHCl), and by smFRET (at 25C), which suggested that, in contrast, the chain contracts by 15-30% over this same denaturant range."
