Dr. Eva-Maria Strauch has had a prolific few months! The Assistant Professor in Pharmaceutical and Biomedical Sciences has published three papers and received two grants to support research in her areas of expertise, which include protein design and engineering, design of anti-virals and immunogens, immunoinformatics, protein chemistry, and re-purposing of viral surface proteins.
Grants Dr. Strauch received in the last several months include:
- An R21 of $224,236 award from the NIH to conduct a two-year study, “Mechanistic Studies of Viral Host Cell Recognition and Entry and their Implication for Protein Design of Molecular Delivery Devices.”
- A $382,750 grant from the Mt. Sinai School of Medicine for a two-year research project as part of NIH funded Collaborative Influenza Vaccine Innovation Centers for designing Universal Influenza vaccine candidates.
Dr. Strauch’s published articles include:
- “Sampling of structure and sequence space of small protein folds” in Nature Communications. Dr. Strauch was the corresponding author and was supported by the team in the Strauch Lab.
- “Deep learning of Protein Sequence Design of Protein-protein Interactions.“ Syrlybaeva R, Strauch EM. Bioinformatics. 2022 Nov 15:btac733. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btac733. Online ahead of print. PMID: 36377772
- “Inhibition of a malaria host-pathogen interaction by a computationally designed inhibitor.” Tobin AR, Crow R, Urusova DV, Klima JC, Tolia NH, Strauch EM. Protein Sci. 2022 Nov 11:e4507. doi: 10.1002/pro.4507. Online ahead of print. PMID: 36367441
