Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Structural Biology
BioFollowing two years working in clinical trials Dr Cocker started his PhD under the supervision of Professor Mark Johnson and Dr Nesrina Imami, studying the impact of HIV-1 infection on pregnancy related immunological changes using fluorescent cytometry and functional assays to explore natural killer, dendritic and T cell populations longitudinally.
Dr Cocker is continuing his work in HIV and other infectious diseases, and is especially focussed on how chronic infection can affect natural killer cell education, development and function.
Professor (Teaching) of Structural Biology, Emerita
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsI am not now actively involved in research, but my past endeavors remain central to my position in guiding medical students in their scholarship pursuits.
The cited publications represent three areas of interest:
(1) medical student research (Jacobs and Cross)
(2) women in medicine (Cross and Steward)
(3) the reproductive physiology of early development (Cross and Brinster)
Only one publication is listed in this area since the research is not current, but others (in e.g. Nature, DevBiol, ExpCellRes) give a broader picture of my pursuit when at the University of Pennsylvania.

Associate Professor of Computer Science and, by courtesy, of Molecular and Cellular Physiology and of Structural Biology
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsMy lab’s research focuses on computational biology, with an emphasis on 3D molecular structure. We combine two approaches: (1) Bottom-up: given the basic physics governing atomic interactions, use simulations to predict molecular behavior; (2) Top-down: given experimental data, use machine learning to predict molecular structures and properties. We collaborate closely with experimentalists and apply our methods to the discovery of safer, more effective drugs.

Current Research and Scholarly InterestsStructural and functional studies of transmembrane receptor interactions with their ligands in systems relevant to human health and disease - primarily in immunity, infection, and neurobiology. We study these problems using protein engineering, structural, biochemical, and combinatorial biology approaches.
