Welcome to The Brett Lab!

Lab Introduction

We are a structural biology lab that applies the techniques of structural biology, biophysics, biochemistry, cellular biology, and immunology to understand the molecular mechanisms underlying human health and disease.

Our research interests include: pulmonary diseases (cystic fibrosis, COPD, asthma), Alzheimer’s disease, and respiratory viral infections.
