Sean-Patrick Scott earned the Ph.D. degree in biochemistry and molecular biophysics from the University of Pennsylvania, and he presently serves as a Professor Investigator at the Hematología and Cáncer Cátedra at the Medical School of ITESM. His previous interests include the interaction of small molecules with protein binding domains, in particular with the cyclic nucleotide binding domains of catabolic gene-activating protein (CRP or CAP from E. coli), cyclic nucleotide gated channels (CNGC), and hyperpolarization-activated cyclic nucleotide-modulated ion channels (HCN). His most recent interests include cancer genetics in the Mexican population, circadian rhythms, and cancer proteomics. Techniques which he has used include kinetic and molecular modeling, X-ray crystallography, protein purification, radioactive, and fluorescent binding protocols, 2D gel electrophoresis, Western Blots, DNA microarray, and general molecular biology techniques.
