Professor Collin M. Stultz | RLE Bio | RLE Video

Professor Collin M. Stultz is a principal investigator in the Research Laboratory of Electronics (RLE) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).  He received his AB from Harvard College in 1988, and his MD from Harvard Medical School and a PhD in Biophysics from Harvard University in 1997. He is a board certified internist and cardiologist. An alumnus of the Harvard-MIT program in Health Sciences and Technology (HST), Professor Stultz is on the faculty of both HST and MIT’s Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. He is a member of the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology and the Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology. Among his honors are being a recipient of the Burroughs Wellcome Fund Career Award in Biomedical Sciences and the James Tolbert Shipley Prize.



Sarah Boman, Chemistry

Sarah is a postdoctoral associate in the Stultz and Drennan groups.  Her research involves the elucidation of structural and mechanistic details of the nickel-dependent transcription factor NikR.  NikR belongs to a family of transcriptional regulators that function in gram-negative bacteria to regulate cellular nickel homeostasis.  Sarah is investigating the role of NikR in Helicobactor pylori by using complementary experimental and computational techniques.

Daniel Arenas

Daniel is a visitor in the Stultz group. He is developing models to extract the conformational entropy from small angle x-ray scattering data of proteins in solution. An interesting scientific question is how does the sampling of different conformations affect the biological role, or pathogenicity, of a protein. The first step to answer this question is to find a quantifiable measure of entropy, and how many conformations the protein samples in solution, so that we can compare these values to the biological roles.


Diego Nolasco

Diego is a visiting scientist in the Research Laboratory of Electronics at MIT. He is interested in developing research about multi-target intrinsically disordered peptides/proteins. He uses replica exchange molecular dynamics to construct free energy landscapes in order to investigate conformational changes that allow functional flexibility and selectivity. Diego hopes to construct knowledge that will provide the necessary basis that will ultimately support the rational design of multi-target and selective drugs.

Graduate Students


Yun is a PhD candidate in the Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and Technology department. He is co-supervised by Professor John Guttag, and works on improving predictive models in medicine using machine learning. Examples of problems that he has worked on include predicting death after an acute coronary syndrome using long-term physiological recordings such as the electrocardiogram and predicting the first incidence of various diseases using medical billing records.
