Meet the PI
Łukasz Joachimiak, Ph.D.
I earned my B.S. in biochemistry from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and my Ph.D. from the University of Washington, where I established computational tools to define the energetic and structural principles that underlie protein-protein interactions. My lab studies protein folding and how cellular factors influence folding, both in vitro and in vivo, focusing on how proteins involved in neurodegenerative diseases change shape to drive disease pathology. (My name is pronounced Woo-kash Yo-ah-heem-e-yak.)
