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.

Feb 2014: The lab is moving to New York City in Sept 2014, joining the CUNY Advanced Science Research Center, now under construction. Kevin is the Director of the Structural Biology Initiative in the ASRC, which will catalyze collaborations among biological and physical scientists throughout the CUNY system. Kevin is also joining the Dept. of Chemistry at City College of New York as his academic home department. Please contact me by email with any questions or comments - Kevin Gardner, Feb 2014

"The photosynthetic reaction center is one of the most complicated molecular complexes...We show here that it operates in a simple, battery-like manner, with a maximum potential of 0.20 V."
