Our Fellows come together across disciplines and institutions to discover tomorrow's biotechnology solutions.
Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
As Director of the Center for Biomolecular Therapeutics (CBT) located within IBBR, Dr. Weber manages state-of-the-art scientific studies that investigate mechanisms involved in disease states and develops drugs to treat them. His laboratory is one of many in the CBT developing small-molecule inhibitors geared toward treating cancer, diabetes, and infectious disease. One such project involves studies of the structure, function, and inhibition of the S100 family of calcium-binding proteins.
