Kendrick is coadvised by Prof. Michelle O'Malley (ChE) and Prof. Songi Han (DCB). His projects with G protein-coupled receptors give him a strong background in molecular cloning and protein expression using E. coli and S. cerevisiae, membrane protein purification and relevant chromatography techniques (IMAC, affinity, and size exclusion), biophysical techniques such as cw-EPR, DEER, and cryo-EM, as well as basic knowledge into computational techniques such as MATLAB, PyMOL, Mathematica, etc. for data processing. He also has a strong interest in biomedically relevant projects, especially those related to medicine, drug discovery, pharmacology, and neurology in human.
