Andrew W. Murray

Herchel Smith Professor of Molecular Genetics
Professor of Molecular and Cellular Biology
Director of FAS Center for Systems Biology

We use budding yeast in three different ways: 1) to experimentally evolve novel traits, such as multicellularity and circadian clocks, 2) to test our understanding of interesting biological traits by trying to engineer them, and 3) to dissect the regulation of cell biologically interesting processes like polarization, energy homeostasis, and the regulation of the cell cycle....

Maxim Prigozhin, Ph.D. (He/ Him/ His)

Assistant Professor
Department of Molecular and Cellular Biology
Department of Applied Physics, Harvard University

The Prigozhin lab is involved in collaborative and interdisciplinary work in the area of single-cell and single-molecule biophysics of transmembrane signaling. We are particularly interested in cryo-vitrification, all kinds of electron and optical microscopy, and G-protein-coupled receptors. Let us know what you are excited about!...
