Marletta Returns as MCB Faculty

The Department welcomes back Dr. Michael Marletta as Professor of Biochemistry, Biophysics and Structural Biology. Marletta's research lies at the interface of chemistry and biology with a particular emphasis on the study of protein function and enzyme reaction mechanisms and a focus on molecular answers to complex functions in biology.

Current projects include nitric oxide signaling (including aspects of S-nitrosation) in prokaryotes and eukaryotes, molecular mechanisms of gas sensing, and mechanisms and fucntions of polysaccaride monooxygenses.
