Dr. Tom Wandless's lab concentrates on the invention of molecules and techniques that enable better studies of biological processes.

In short, they invent tools for biology and we are motivated by approaches that enable entirely new experiments with unprecedented control. These new techniques may also provide a window into mechanisms that cells use to maintain protein homeostasis. Protein quality control is a particular interest at present.
