Maillard Lab News:

Septemer 7, 2017

Congratulations to Yuxin Hao and Clare Canavan for their published paper in Scientific Reports entitled "Integrated Method to Attach DNA Handles and Functionally Select Proteins to Study Folding and Protein-Ligand Interactions with Optical Tweezers." This is our first paper in single molecule biophysics; an important milestone in out laboratory!

August 8, 2017

The Maillard lab was awarded a grant from the NSF for the project entitled "Single Molecule Studies to Dissect Allosteric Communication Networks in Protein Kinase A". This is an important milestone in our research group!  Thanks to everyone in the Maillard for their effort!

April 14, 2017

Our article "Asymmetric configurations in a reengineered homodimer reveal multiple subunit communication pathways in protein allostery" published in JBC was selected an Editor's Pick, recommended in F1000Prime and highlighted in the Georgetown College website. Congrats to Maria Fe Lanfranco and Fernanda Garate for their excellent work! Also, check out the cool illustration made by Sahar in the Georgetown website.
