Understanding Enzymes: Conformation Coupled Catalysis

Dr. Gordon Hammes
University Distinguished Service Professor of Biochemistry Emeritus
Duke University
Member, National Academy of Sciences
Host: Dr. Huan-Xiang Zhou

Research Interests: My research is concerned with studying the dynamics of single enzyme molecules using fluorescence microscopy. Ensemble averaged measurements (normal enzyme kinetics) can mask some of the individual events that occur during catalysis.
