Cell death

Deciphering the complex molecular activity that leads to cell death

Research on the mechanism of cell death has insights to bring progress on neurodegenerative diseases and plant biosecurity.

In Brief

  • Advances made possible by these insights into structural biology facilitate drug design and drug discovery

  • Protein X-ray crystallography enables investigators to determine the structure of proteins, large complex molecules that have critical roles in these processes
