Chemistry

Several Professors from the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Lethbridge contribute to both the delivery of the Biochemistry Program and cutting-edge, award-winning Research within the field.

Dr. Borries Demeler - Our group focuses on biophysical solution methods such as small angle scattering, analytical ultracentrifugation and molecular dynamics to elucidate the structure and function of bio-macromolecules, assemblies, nanoparticles and synthetic polymers. Contact Dr. Demeler at demeler@uleth.ca 

Dr. Steven Mosimann - Structure and Function of RNA Processing. This laboratory determines atomic resolution and 3D structures (pictures) of proteins that are of medical and biological significance. These structures allow us to understand how these proteins function and contribute to the development of new medicines and biotechnology products.

Dr. Trushar Patel - Biomolecular Interactions: The unifying theme of my research is to study multi-domain proteins, protein-nucleic acids and protein-protein complexes that affect various cellular processes.

Dr. Nehalkumar Thakor - Research areas include Metabolic engineering, RNA synthetic biology, and protein translation regulation in oncogenesis.
