John Voss is a Professor of biochemistry and molecular medicine at University of California Davis. Dr. Voss received his Ph.D. degree at the University of Minnesota Medical School, 1993, where he used time-resolved luminescence to observe protein-protein interactions in native biological membranes. He then was a fellow at the Howard Hughes Medical and Jules Stein Eye institutes, UCLA, where he explored site-directed spin labeling approaches for engineered proteins. His current research is focused on protein folding and aggregation, and the molecular switching of lipid-binding proteins. Using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy and protein engineering, these studies illuminate the structure and behavior of proteins in complex systems.
