research overview

  • Dr. Hough is currently studying intrinsically disordered proteins using solution NMR and light microscopy. Proteins containing disordered domains perform many important cellular functions, and are often used by cells to respond to their environments. Dr. Hough's lab focuses on two protein classes, those involved in selective transport between the nucleus and the cytoplasm (the FG Nups) and the cytoskeletal proteins alpha- and beta-tubulin.
