Yale University is home to a vibrant and growing structural biology community, currently consisting of research groups that use X-ray, NMR, or EM techniques to study cellular processes at the molecular level. Areas of interest include signal transduction, inflammation and cancer, protein synthesis, membrane trafficking, membrane transport, quality control in the ER, protein folding, protein design, DNA and RNA processing, viral and host proteins important for viral infection, among others.
Prospective graduate students should apply to the Biological and Biomedical Sciences (BBS) program via any one of the tracks with which principal investigators are affiliated, including "Molecular Biophysics and Biochemistry", "Molecular Cell Biology, Genetics and Development", "Pharmacological Sciences and Molecular Medicine", and "Physiology and Integrative Medical Biology" or to apply to the Yale Chemistry graduate program.
Prospective postdoctoral research fellows should directly contact individual faculty members.
