Graduate Programs in the Biomedical Sciences


Sue Wickner, Ph.D.


Head, DNA Molecular Biology Section
Distinguished Investigator, National Institutes of Health

Ph.D. 1973, Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University

Mentor: Dr. Jerry Hurwitz, Ph.D. 

Dr. Wickner's laboratory has contributed to the understanding of ATP-dependent protein machines essential for DNA replication, protein remodeling, and proteolysis. The current research goal of her group is to elucidate the mechanisms of action of energy-utilizing molecular chaperones in protein folding, protein activation and aggregate disassembly, and the role of chaperones in proteolysis.
