Professor of Bioscience, at KAUST since 2013, PI of the Structural Biology & Engineering (StruBE) group. Prof. Arold’s research is dedicated to elucidating the molecular basis of the function and (de)regulation of proteins central to cellular key signaling networks. His investigations are based on an integrated structural biology approach that combines functional and structural data from multiple sources (small angle X-ray scattering, X-ray crystallography, NMR, computational methods, biochemistry, high-throughput ligand binding assays and functional analyses). Some say that the name StruBE stemms from Prof. Arold’s first hamster (R.I.P. 1981), but this has not yet been confirmed.
