Charles Dann, III


Research in the Dann lab focuses on the use of biochemical and biophysical techniques to understand processes relevant to human health and disease. Projects include those centered on the development of therapeutics for cancer and inflammatory disease and also ones aimed at modulating key metabolic pathways in bacteria as a means to uncover novel targets for new antibiotic development. In addition to employing recombinant DNA and a range of protein and RNA biochemical techniques, the Dann group routinely uses atomic resolution models of proteins, determined by crystallization of these proteins, to guide scientific discovery efforts.
