Assistant professor Oliver Clarke

Columbia University, USA

After completing my PhD in membrane protein crystallography at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute in the Gulbis laboratory, I moved to New York for my postdoc in Wayne Hendrickson’s lab at Columbia, where I initially attempted to solve the structure of the ryanodine receptor intracellular calcium release channel by crystallography, and later by cryoEM. Since November 2017, I have had my own laboratory at Columbia in the department of Anesthesiology, investigating the structure and gating mechanism of ion channels using cryoEM.
