I am gay and I am a computational structural biologist at a cancer research center. //
I grew up in Waltham, Massachusetts. I came out after college in 1986, when we began to have an idea of how to be safe. I have a research group at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in Philadelphia, where I’ve been an assistant/associate/professor for the last 21 years. We work on statistical studies of protein structure, protein structure prediction, and computational design, particularly in proteins related to cancer like antibodies and kinases. I’m out to my students and colleagues and I’m proud of my diverse lab.
