Research and teaching

Research Activities

Savchenko laboratory pursues structure-function studies of microbial proteins involved in pathogenesis and conferring antibiotic resistance to provide the molecular framework for development of urgently needed novel antimicrobial therapies. In this research, we combine protein molecular structure visualization by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectrometry with biochemical and in vivo/infection studies.
