Professor Matthew D. Shoulders, who is currently the Whitehead Career Development Assistant Professor, has been promoted to Associate Professor without tenure effective July 1, 2017. The Shoulders Lab is developing and applying a chemical biology and small molecule-derived toolbox to probe the cell's protein folding network and manipulate it in defined ways. They employ a multi-disciplinary approach to understand how the cell remodels itself to address challenges to protein homeostasis, to elucidate the pathophysiology of protein folding-related diseases with poorly defined etiologies, and to target the biological processes we uncover for the development of first-in-class small molecule drugs.
