“Perseverance and Proteins”

In her research, Molly functions as a protein marriage counselor. Instead of trying to uncover pieces of each person’s personality or experiences that fit together, she tries to pinpoint protein motifs that might be matches made in heaven.

Attempting to answer this binding question so far has led to dozens more questions, and her lab is working to answer them with perseverance, patience, and occasional playfulness.
