Michael Brenowitz

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

The presenter is a Professor in the Department of Biochemistry at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine whose research revolves around macromolecular structure – function relationships. His laboratory has developed novel approaches to facilitate the study of protein and nucleic acid structure, assembly, and folding. Not surprisingly, analytical ultracentrifugation (AUC) is a method routinely used in his laboratory. (Indeed, the presenter conducted his first AUC run in the summer of 1976 on Model E serial number 7.) He is a CASSS Associate Director and a member of the CASSS Biophysics Working Group (BWG). His talk reflects the most recent collaborative effort of the BWG to articulate best practices crucial to the development and production of protein therapeutics.
