Cavanagh Lab at NCSU
Our group is generally interested in how the specific structure and inherent flexibility of proteins helps them carry out their biological roles. For a few years and with some success, we have been focusing on proteins involved in bacterial response and protection. Proteins responsible for keeping bacteria alive. If you want to see what we're doing in this regard, flip around the website a little and maybe look at a couple of examples of our publications (listed below).
We use NMR as our big platform technology, but we are pretty well-rounded when it comes to addressing our research problems. Consequently some sophisticated mass spectrometry is becoming a major player in our work.
