The Department of Structural and Chemical Biology

The Mount Sinai Department of Structural and Chemical Biology is dedicated to addressing the most challenging problems in human biology and disease at the basic molecular level using structural biology, biophysics, chemical biology, and computational methods.  We aim to advance science and medicine through studying atomic structure, molecular function and regulation of biological macromolecules, designing novel small molecules to elucidate biology and disease mechanisms, and developing new therapeutics for treatment.

Protein-Nucleic Acid Interactions

The Aggarwal laboratory studies how enzymes and transcriptional and translational regulators interact with nucleic acids to affect cellular development and disease outcome.

Computational Biophysics of Membrane Proteins

The Filizola Laboratory uses computational structural biology tools to achieve a detailed mechanistic understanding of signal transduction processes triggered by molecular recognition in membrane protein complex systems such as G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and platelet integrin aIIbb3.
