About

Bob Stroud studies a number of key biological processes, with the goal of understanding molecular mechanisms from a structural perspective, including structure-based drug design, the study of membrane proteins and studies of HIV and viral proteases. He leads the Vpu project and is involved in determining structures of HIV protein complexes with viral and host factors, including membrane proteins and has been involved in development of new EM methods in collaboration with Yifan Cheng and Charles Craik.
