Randy Radmer, Ph.D.

After a stint as an Electrical Engineer and a summer getting my hands dirty studying the electrophysiology of leech neurons, I did my graduate work with Peter Kollman at UCSF. In addition to working in industry developing software for wireless devices, I have worked on a number of molecular modeling and function prediction projects. My current research activities in Russ Altman's lab include coarse grained RNA structure prediction and protein function prediction using dynamic models, as well as examining the basis of inherited diseases of collagen. But my primary responsibilities are closer to my engineering roots: programming, system administration, website development, and database administration for the Simbios project.
