2010 - Hellman Fellow
His main research concerns Biophysics, Cell biology, Cell wall, Peptidoglycan and Biochemistry. His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Crystallography, FtsZ, Escherichia coli, Protein structure and Guanosine. Kerwyn Casey Huang focuses mostly in the field of Cell biology, narrowing it down to matters related to Membrane protein and, in some cases, Lipid bilayer, Cardiolipin and Membrane fluidity.
His Cell wall study incorporates themes from MreB, Cytoskeleton and Osmotic pressure. His studies deal with areas such as Cell wall organization, Bacterial cell structure, Turgor pressure, Cell envelope and Gram-negative bacteria as well as Peptidoglycan. Kerwyn Casey Huang combines subjects such as Bacterial outer membrane and Cell membrane with his study of Cell envelope.
His primary areas of investigation include Biophysics, Cell biology, Cell wall, Cytoskeleton and Bacteria. His Biophysics research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Membrane, Biochemistry, Motility and Escherichia coli. His Escherichia coli study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Mutant and Microbiology.
His Cell biology study incorporates themes from Cell growth, Cell division, Cell membrane, Caulobacter crescentus and Membrane protein. As a member of one scientific family, he mostly works in the field of Cell wall, focusing on Bacterial cell structure and, on occasion, Function. His studies in Cytoskeleton integrate themes in fields like Protein structure, Protein filament and Molecular dynamics.
Kerwyn Casey Huang mostly deals with Biophysics, Bacteria, Cell biology, Mutant and Gut flora. His research integrates issues of Lysis, Actin, Dynamics and Escherichia coli in his study of Biophysics. The concepts of his Actin study are interwoven with issues in MreB, Cytoskeleton, Protein filament, Nuclear pore and Transmembrane protein.
His study in Cell biology is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Adaptation, Experimental evolution and Cell morphology. His Mutant research includes themes of Cell and FtsZ. His work deals with themes such as Cell wall and Inner membrane, which intersect with Cell.
His scientific interests lie mostly in Biophysics, Gut flora, Bacteria, Cell biology and Escherichia coli. His work in Biophysics tackles topics such as Caulobacter crescentus which are related to areas like Cell wall, Peptidoglycan turnover, Peptidoglycan and Lysozyme. His Bacteria research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Osmolyte, Cell morphology, Osmotic concentration, Metabolic pathway and Experimental evolution.
His work in the fields of Cell biology, such as Homeostasis, overlaps with other areas such as Context. His Escherichia coli research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Cell, Efflux and Membrane protein. His studies examine the connections between Cell and genetics, as well as such issues in Lysis, with regards to Mutant.
