Gregory Bedwell, Ph.D.Post-Doctoral Fellow
Greg received his B.S. in Chemistry (2009) and Ph.D. in Biophysics (2016) from the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Greg completed his Ph.D. under the mentorship of Peter E. Prevelige, Jr. During his graduate career, Greg studied the mechanisms of virus genome packaging in the bacteriophage P22 and virus assembly and maturation in P22 and HIV-1 using a variety of solution-based biophysical techniques.In addition, he developed a virus-inspired system for the spatially confined biomineralization of titanium dioxide for photocatalytic applications. Greg moved to the Engelman lab at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in 2016, where he is interested in combining his knowledge of protein chemistry, molecular biology, and computational biology to design novel bacterial expression systems for intrinsically disordered and compositionally biased proteins. He is also studying the site selection preferences of HIV-1 integration in the human genome during acute and latent stages of infection. Outside of the lab, Greg enjoys time with his family, obsessively rooting for Liverpool Football Club, listening to and playing music, and good books.
