Dr. Carl C. Correll received a PhD in biological chemistry from the University of Michigan in 1992. From 1992 to 1997, he worked as a an American Cancer Society postdoctoral fellow at Yale University. He was an associate professor of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Chicago from 1998 to 2004.

Current Research Projects In The Correll Lab

One project is to investigate the mechanism by which the DEAH helicase Dhr1 dislodges U3 from the pre-ribosome, a key step in ribosome biogenesis. We have a paper in press at PLOS Biology that identifies Dhr1 as the helicase that dislodges U3 from the pre-rRNA in vivo and we show in vitro that Dhr1 unwinds U3-pre-rRNA duplexes in a mechanism reminiscent of DEAD box proteins.
