2004 ASBMB-AMGEN Award
Dr. Almo has achieved a position of world-leadership in structural biology by developing a unique program in the cytoskeleton and functional analysis of contractile and allergenic proteins. His recent work has been on the co-stimulatory molecules that modulate the T cell response of the adaptive immune response and the structural and biochemical analysis of the molecules that regulate the actin cytoskeleton and contractile and motile cellular processes. He is a founding member of the New York Structural Genomics Research Consortium, one of the nine NIH-funded National Centers charged with the development of a high throughput structure discovery pipeline to provide a useable model for all individual protein structures.
