Michael Cianfrocco, Ph.D.

Boston, MA

I am currently an HHMI Fellow of the Damon Runyon Cancer Research Foundation working as a joint post-doctoral fellow in two labs:

Samara Reck-Peterson (Dept. Cell Biology, Harvard Medical School)
Andres Leschziner (Dept. of Molecular & Cellular Biology, Harvard University)

Broadly, my scientific interests lay at the molecular foundation of biology: how do protein assemblies give rise to ‘ordered’ molecular processes? More specifically, how do conformational changes in protein complexes drive the directionality of fundamental biology processes?
