he Colson laboratory focuses on myofilament proteins that regulate contraction (e.g., MyBPC and MLC). He uses biophysical approaches, such as time-resolved spectroscopy with state-of-the art site directed probes to assess protein structural dynamics and mechanical measurements of isolated diseased muscle fibers. He has leveraged his technology into a high-throughput novel drug-discovery platform that is highly efficient and precise - accelerating the process of lead identification of drug candidates.
