The F04B panel reviews fellowship applications that address basic structure-function relationships in a variety of systems, using biophysical and biochemical approaches. The emphasis is on elucidating structure and function as well as dynamic characteristics of individual proteins, macromolecular assemblies and nucleic acids, as well as their complexes.

The List of Reviewers lists all present, whether permanent or temporary, to provide the full scope of expertise present on that date. Lists are posted 30 days before the meeting and are tentative, pending any last minute changes.

Review Dates

Topics


  • Enzymology, catalytic mechanisms, involving proteins metalloenzymes or nucleic acid catalysts.
