Dmitry Lyumkis, PhD
Many biological functions are performed by multi-protein complexes that coordinate to execute specific tasks—for example, enabling a virus to invade a cell. Dmitry Lyumkis’ lab uses a technique called cryogenic electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to visualize how these “molecular machines” work. The molecular blueprints he uncovers provide not only insight into how such machines function, but also inform the development and improvement of therapeutics. For example, his lab’s discoveries are helping to improve antiretroviral therapies for combatting the HIV.
