Andrzej Joachimiak is a biophysicist who works in the area of protein structure, a
critical aspect of drug design. Joachimiak and his team are working to improve
methods that determine protein structures including new techniques in protein
production, crystal growth, X-ray crystallographic structure.
The collaboration with private industry is extensive. According to ANL, 54
pharmaceutical and biotech firms worked with Joachimiak and other Argonne scientists at the Advanced
Photon Source to link structure to function in designing new and more effective drugs.
Joachimiak has filed for two patents relating to his work. He studied molecular biology at the Institute of
Biochemistry and Biophysics at the Polish Academy of Sciences, Warsaw, Poland and received M.S. and
Ph.D. degrees in Chemistry from University of A. Mickiewicz, Poznan, Poland.
