Department of Pharmacology & Chemical Biology at the University of Pittsburgh
Furey Lab Biocrystallography Laboratory, VA Medical Center
VA Medical Center, Pittsburgh, PA 15260

The Furey lab concentrates on the following:

1) Determination and analysis of structure-function relationships in macromolecules of biological interest, including thiamin diphosphate dependent enzymes, immunoglobulins, bacterial toxins, digestive enzymes and other proteins. X-Ray Crystallography is the primary method employed.

2) Development of techniques for the determination and analysis of macromolecular crystal structures.

3) Application /development of computing techniques and algorithms for understanding biological function on a molecular level.
