William Weis - William M. Hume Professor in the School of Medicine, Professor of Structural Biology, of Molecular and Cellular Physiology, and of Photon Science

Seed Grant Committee Member, Bio-X Affiliated Faculty

Dr. Weis's laboratory studies molecular interactions that underlie the establishment and maintenance of cell and tissue structure. Their specific areas of interest are the targeted delivery of proteins to intracellular membranes, the architecture and dynamics of intercellular adhesion junctions, and signaling pathways that govern cell fate determination. They also have a long-standing interest in carbohydrate-based cellular recognition and adhesion.
