Dr. Gingras's work focus on determining the three-dimensional structure of protein-protein complexes to better understand how they interact with each others. He is also working closely with biologists to test structure-guided mutant proteins that fail to interact with each others to better understand the role of the interactions in the development of certain diseases. Dr. Gingras's research falls into three distinct but overlapping areas: i) cell-extracellular matrix interactions, ii) cell-cell interactions, and iii) the complement system of immunity.
