Matsumura Laboratory

Ichiro Matsumura, Ph.D.

Associate Professor

Ichiro MatsumuraMy objective is to understand the adaptive evolution of protein structure and function. I recapitulate the evolutionary process in the laboratory, and identify the correlations between specific changes in tertiary structure and improvements in fitness. These experiments often yield proteins with enhanced industrial or pharmaceutical utility.
