Job Title Administrative Assistant (part-time, 20 hours/week)

Laboratory / Department Membrane Biology and Biophysics

Department Description

Research in our lab centers on ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters, a diverse group of membrane proteins integral to almost every biological process. In prokaryotes, these proteins are critical for survival. In humans, ABC transporters make up one of the largest gene families, and more than a dozen genetic diseases have been traced to ABC transporter defects. ABC transporters are also central to multidrug resistance in many pathogenic bacteria and in tumor cells. By pursing structural and mechanistic studies of ABC transporters, we hope to understand how nature utilizes the chemical energy of ATP hydrolysis to perform work - transporting substrates against their chemical gradients.
