Sidney Arthur Simon
Professor Emeritus of Neurobiology
Another focus of Dr. Simon's laboratory is to investigate the physical chemical interactions that occur when peptides interact with membranes. To date we have focused on leader sequences. This work is in collaboration with the laboratory of Dr. Tom Mcintosh in the Cell Biology Department.
