Brief Description of Research Interest :

My interest lies in examining how protein biochemistry is altered in disease. My doctoral work identified the biochemical basis of a familial disease caused by a mutation in the membrane-associated receptor guanylyl cyclase C (GC-C). I also analyzed how glycosylation of GC-C affects its function, trafficking, and interactions with novel lectin chaperones. 

I am currently working on the process of peptide loading and antigen presentation of major histocompatibility complex class I (MHC-I) molecules. I investigate how the interactions between MHC-I, a glycosylated protein, and members of the ER-quality control pathway affect peptide loading and antigen presentation during viral infection and cancer.
