Department of Chemistry Seminar Series: Steve Reichow, Portland State University
Science Building 1, room 107, 1025 SW Mill Street
 

Portland State University Assistant Professor of Chemistry, Steve Reichow, will present at the Department of Chemistry's weekly seminar series

About Professor Reichow

Steve received his Ph.D. in 2006 from the University of Washington where he continued as a postdoctoral fellow until 2011. He held a second postdoctoral fellow position at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute until 2014, before accepting the position here at Portland State University. Research in the Reichow Lab is inspired by the molecular mechanisms driving biology. Their research applies biochemical methods, coupled with high-resolution imaging and structure determination by electron cryo-microscopy (cryoEM) to describe the functional mechanisms of membrane proteins and cell-signaling complexes. They aim to understand membrane protein function, and what goes wrong in disease, by characterizing their mechanisms of action and modes of regulation at the molecular and atomic levels using cryoEM.
