Research interests

Charles' research focuses on the fundamental relationship between the atomic structure of molecules and how they function in cells. The method of Protein Crystallography has made a major contribution to our understanding of enzyme mechanism, molecular recognition, and to our growing knowledge of the mechanics of molecular machines. Research projects in structural biology are aimed to contribute to areas such as drug design and protein engineering. A key focus of his recent efforts has been in the application of protein crystallography to biomedical research.
