Scott Horowitz first became interested in molecular structure and dynamics as an undergraduate student looking for a way to understand the biological world from the most basic building blocks of physics and chemistry. In his doctoral work, Scott investigated the role of unconventional hydrogen bonds in S-adenosylmethionine-dependent methylation, providing evidence not only for their existence but also their specific biological roles and importance in enzyme function.
As a member of the Bardwell laboratory, Scott has continued to take an atomistic approach to studying biology to understand the details of chaperone function using various structural biology techniques. He also has begun to investigate how we can use gaming to improve biochemistry research and education. In his spare time, Scott enjoys singing, playing, listening, reading, analyzing, and talking about music.
