Researcher Needed: Choi Lab

Posted on July 2, 2021: Dr. Brandon Choi’s research lab is looking for 2-3 highly motivated undergraduate students to join our research group in the fall of 2021. The Choi lab studies how protein conformations are affected by devastating neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and Huntington’s. We use the cutting-edge single-molecule microscopy technique called smFRET (single-molecule fluorescence resonance energy transfer) to identify and characterize the dynamic structures and protein-protein interactions of various proteins such as alpha-synuclein, amyloid beta, HTT, and SNAREs.
