Gabriel C. LanderBS, PhD
Gabe Lander has been solving the structures of macromolecular machines by cryo-electron microscopy (cryoEM) for over 12 years, using 3D structures to shed light on how protein assemblies interact with the cellular environment. Gabe received his B.S. in biochemistry from Binghamton University, and performed his graduate studies at The Scripps Research Institute jointly under Bridget Carragher, Clint Potter, and Jack Johnson.
Gabe then performed his postdoctoral research at UC Berkeley, applying his streamlined cryoEM methodologies to investigate the properties of microtubule dynamics and the mechanism of protein degradation by the 26S proteasome. As an Associate Professor at The Scripps Research Institute, Gabe’s group uses the latest cutting-edge cryoEM instrumentation and innovative processing algorithms to determine the molecular bases for heart diseases, neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases, and cancers. Gabe is a recipient of an Innovator Award from the National Institutes of Health, and is a Searle and Pew Scholar.
