Why Protein Structure Matters in Drug Development

Video   Dec 15, 2017 | Original video from Albert Einstein College of Medicine

 

Using animations and a walk through his lab, Dr. Steven Almo explains in lay terms why protein structure and shape are important in developing drugs to fight disease. See how proteins are turned into crystals, how X-ray crystallography works and how an immune cell’s ignition, accelerator and brakes can be manipulated to fight cancer or autoimmune disease. Dr. Almo is professor of biochemistry and Wollowick Family Foundation Chair in Multiple Sclerosis and Immunology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine.
