Rick Baker Lab – Research: structural biology, membrane trafficking, cancer biology, cryo-EM methods development. Our research aims to understand the molecular mechanisms of membrane trafficking. We use the tools of cryo electron microscopy (cryo-EM) to study how protein complexes assemble on membranes to bud and fuse vesicles. Specialties: cryo-EM, X-ray crystallography, biochemistry, protein purificationACCEPTING STUDENTSBaker lab website
