Form follows function or function follows form? How do 2 interacting proteins find each other in a cell within millions of other macromolecules? Since my college days at UCSD, I have always been fascinated by protein structures and how they encode functions within them. To search for these answers, I have traveled from San Francisco (US), Frankfurt (Germany), and Oxford (England), and returned back to San Diego again. This time I am attracted to viral proteins structures and seeking to understand how small viral proteins can disrupt large cellular macromolecular complexes.
