Adrian Salic
Professor of Cell Biology

We study biochemical and cellular mechanisms involved in signal transduction through the Hedgehog signaling pathway. We also develop and apply new chemical technologies to study the cell biology of lipids.

Sichen (Susan) Shao

Assistant Professor of Cell Biology

We aim to understand the molecular mechanisms that regulate protein biogenesis and quality control pathways with approaches utilizing biochemistry, structural biology, and cell biology. Specific interests focus on processes that occur on ribosomes and at cellular membranes.

Robert V. Farese, Jr.

Bob Farese
Professor of Genetics and Complex Diseases (HSPH)
Professor of Cell Biology

The Farese & Walther Lab determines the mechanisms how cells regulate the abundance of lipids, how they store lipids to buffer fluctuation in their availability and how these processes function in membrane biology and cell physiology.

HHMI Investigator

Our laboratory determines the mechanisms how cells regulate the abundance of lipids, how they store lipids to buffer fluctuation in their availability and how these processes function in membrane biology and cell physiology.

Maofu Liao
Assistant Professor of Cell Biology

We use high-resolution electron microscopy to study the structure and function of membrane proteins and other macromolecular complexes.

Tom Rapoport

Professor of Cell Biology
HHMI Investigator

We are interested in the molecular mechanisms by which proteins are transported across or are inserted into the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) membrane. We have dissected both cotranslational protein translocation in mammals and posttranslational translocation in yeast using a combination of biochemical approaches.

Springer Family Chair (BCH)
Senior Investigator, Program in Cellular and Molecular Medicine (BCH)
Professor of Cell Biology

Our research focuses on the processes that mediate and regulate the movement of membrane proteins throughout cells.
