The focus of the UB/HWI Structural Biology Department is biological form and function at the level of the three-dimensional atomic architecture of biological macromolecules and macromolecular assemblies. The department’s program of graduate studies provides thorough training in the principles and practice of the main methodologies of structural molecular biology, namely: protein expression, purification, and crystallization; X-ray diffraction crystallography; nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy; and computational structural modeling.
faculty of the Structural Biology Department is comprised of principal
staff scientists of the Hauptman-Woodward Medical Research Institute,
Inc., an internationally renowned biocrystallographic research center.
Institute and Department are housed in a beautiful new building on
the Buffalo-Niagara Medical Campus,
adjacent to the new building complex that houses the UB
Center of Excellence in Bioinformatics and Life Sciences and the
Park Cancer Institute Centers for Genetics and Pharmacology. The
structural biology faculty also includes some members cross-appointed
from these neighboring centers and from other UB departments.
