Structural Biology of Cell Migration and Viral Infection

The Schur group uses advanced cryo-electron tomography and image processing methods to study the structure and function of protein complexes in situ. The group focuses on the dynamic actin cytoskeleton, the key player in the ability of cells to move. In addition, the group develops cryo-electron tomography and subtomogram averaging tools using retroviruses as model systems, also trying to answer important questions in conservation and diversity of retroviral capsids.
