Dr. Liou's general research interest is to use a combination of molecular biology, biochemistry, electron microscopy and bioinformatics to elucidate the mechanism underlying the function of large protein assemblies known as macromolecular machines. He is particularly interested in the structure-function relation of protein complexes that are involved in establishing chromosome structure and those that mediate gene activation/transcription. He would be interested in either establishing a new electron microscopy facility or in joining an existing facility. He is also open to collaborations with other group leaders who wish to use electron microscopy to answer specific questions in their own research area.
