Brian Kuhlman, PhD
Dr. Kuhlman joined the Department in 2002 after extremely productive postdoctoral training in protein computational biology with Dr. David Baker at the University of Washington in Seattle, and graduate training in protein biophysics with Dr. Daniel Raleigh at SUNY - Stony Brook. Brian is particularly interested in using his experience and training to break new ground in protein design. He initiated the Baker lab's interests in this area by developing a powerful new computer program to facilitate design efforts. Brian has gotten off to a fast start at UNC: he recently received a grant from the NIH to pursue design work and he published an important advance in the prestigious journal Science ("Design of a Novel Globular Protein Fold with Atomic Level Accuracy", Science 302, 1364-1368, 2003).
