Peptides and proteins play a vital role in almost every cellular process in living organisms. Our research discovers and determines structural information on peptides and proteins to design drugs to more effectively treat human disease.

The broad objective of our research program in Bioorganic Chemistry and Chemical Biology is to construct protein therapeutics, protein mimetics, biomaterials, and biosensors. Our research at the University of Arizona is highly multidisciplinary and utilizes techniques in organic synthesis, biochemistry, molecular biology, and a host of physical characterization methods. Our research motto is simple: Unraveling mysteries and Enabling discoveries.

Andrew Hausrath's lab studies the structures of proteins and complexes using X-ray crystallography, microscopy, and biophysical techniques. Proteins of certain classes are heavily represented as components of complexes. Knowledge of the structures and properties of the proteins which function within higher-order complexes then stimulates development of improved models and theory about how such complexes carry out their functions in the cell. Systems of current interest include the ATP synthase, the signaling hormone adiponectin, and the higher-order organization of chromatin in the nucleus.

Our research is centered on the prevention and treatment of our major degenerative diseases. We concentrate on peptide hormones and neurotransmitters and their receptors that are involved in these major diseases. Specific potential applications include pigmentary disorders, melanoma cancer, feeding disorders, pain, sexual function and motivation, and neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, etc.

We seek to develop tools and strategies to expedite the understanding and treatment of the dengue virus. These advances will be transferable to other areas of virology and biochemistry. Along these lines, we are engaged in three core synergistic projects to answer the following questions: (1) Do unnatural metabolites incorporated into DENV serve as reporters for host-pathogen interactions? (2) What are the host-pathogen interactions in DENV that are targetable for diagnosis or treatment? (3) Is there a chemical reaction between two small molecules that reports on the interaction between DENV and host proteins?

We seek to produce new drugs that harness molecules produced during the natural immune response in order to treat cancer and pain. Such compounds may also provide new treatments for heart failure and alcoholism.

We investigate how proteins work in healthy organisms and how they fail in disease. We determine the atomic structures of proteins and the underlying biochemistry that gives rise to protein function. We also develop new proteins as drug targets for treating cancer and cardiovascular disease.
