Christopher O'Brien

Email: cjobrien@udel.edu

Education:
B.S., Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, 2010

Anvar Samadzod

Phone: 302-831-6642
Email: aanvars@udel.edunvars@udel.edu

Education:
B.S. Chemical Engineering, Middle East Technical University, Ankara, Turkey (2007)

Research:
Characterization of protein-detergent complexes (PDCs) of a GPCR, the A2a receptor (hA2aR). The objective is to leverage prior studies of the Lenhoff group on phase behavior and crystallizability and findings of the Robinson lab on overexpression of hA2aR and PDC characterization for further identification of parameters governing PDC structure and interactions in the hA2aR system.
