Nathan N Alder
Department of Molecular and Cell Biology
University of Connecticut, USA
Dr. Nathan N Alder did his Ph.D from University of California in Plant Biology, Postdoctoral Research Associate, Texas A&M University Health Science Center in biochemistry and biophysics. Research Grant Funding in July 2013 on Investigation of the Structure and Functional Dynamics of the Mitochondrial Protein Import Machinery, from July 24 on Monitoring effects of cancer associated mutations on conformation dynamics of DNA mismatch repair proteins.
Dr. Alder’s research program in the Department of Molecular and Cell Biology at the University of Connecticut employs a host of biochemical and biophysical approaches to study the structure, function and biogenesis of mitochondrial membrane proteins. Our research program focuses on three major project areas. The first, sponsored by the National Science Foundation, is an investigation of the TIM23 protein transport machinery that mediates the import of nuclear encoded proteins into the mitochondrial and sorting them to their correct locations.
