🔬 Research interest: structural virology, cryo-electron microscopy, electron tomography, microbial biofilms

The Strauss lab uses biophysical approaches to investigate topics in picornavirus cell-entry and packaging, as well as microbial biofilms. Sometimes that means we need to develop new tools to answer the questions we have. Much of Dr. Strauss’ work is centered on cryo-electron microscopy, and in particular, electron tomography. Dr. Strauss is a member of the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, and is the Technical Director of FEMR.
