About the Palzkill Lab
The primary focus of the Palzkill Lab is understanding the molecular basis of serine and metallo β-lactamase-mediated antibiotic resistance, development of Norovirus diagnostic tools and therapeutics, and molecular recognition in protein-protein interactions. To investigate these and other diverse projects currently underway in the lab, various tools such as phage display, ELISAs, surface plasmon resonance, peptide synthesis, protein purification, enzyme kinetics, and X-Ray crystallography are used.
The Palzkill Lab is currently working on the following projects:
- Molecular basis of resistance to β-lactam antibiotics
- Development of Norovirus diagnostics tools and antibody inhibitors
- Molecular recognition in protein-protein interactions
