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.
