Argonne National Laboratory
Andrzej Joachimiak is an expert in synchrotron-based X-ray crystallography and structural biology. At Argonne, he has made significant contributions to the high-throughput crystallography using synchrotron radiation and the development of state-of-the-art facilities for macromolecular crystallography. The development and integration of the novel synchrotron beamlines, exploitation of the anomalous signal-based phasing methods in the third-generation environment and integration of hardware and software at the Structural Biology Center beamlines at the Advanced Photon Source contributed very strongly to the enhanced efficiency of such facilities worldwide. In addition to his duties at Argonne, Andrzej is also a Professor at the University of Chicago, Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University, Senior Fellow at the Computation Institute and the Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology.
Andrzej’s current research also focuses on proteins and protein-nucleic acid interactions and includes enzymes, transcription factors and molecular chaperones.
