Dr. Fetrow's research focuses on understanding how proteins work in the cell by studying the intricate relationships that exist between protein function and structure, involving communication networks both within the protein and between proteins. To achieve this her lab is developing methods and tools to aid in the early stages of drug discovery using Bioinformatics, Computational Biophysics and Systems Biology approaches.
