My group uses combined biochemical, structural and computational approaches to study some of the key events that take place within the functional nano-environment of the ribosomal exit tunnel. This includes translational arrest induced by nascent polypeptides known as arrest peptides, and bacterial ribosome inhibition by antimicrobial peptides or antibiotics.
