Rama Ranganathan, M.D., Ph.D., UT Southwestern

Department of Chemistry


Natural proteins can fold spontaneously into well-defined three-dimensional structures, can carry out complex biochemical properties such as signal transmission, efficient catalysis of chemical reactions, specificity in molecular recognition, and allosteric conformational change. All of this is achieved while also preserving the capacity for rapid adaptive variation in response to fluctuating...   More >
