We are in the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering administered jointly between Georgia Tech and Emory University School of Medicine. Our lab is located on the Georgia Tech campus in the Petit Institute for Bioengineering and Bioscience.

The lab research focuses on understanding at a systemic level how oxidative stress - induced internally by ROS generation or by extracellular environment - leads to rapid but transient changes in signal transduction proteins through thiol modification. Our lab uses computational modeling techniques to study how signaling network may be regulated by the resultant changes in activities from these modifications. We also are developing biochemical techniques to detect and quantify the glutathionylation of proteins.
