Dr. Roux received his PhD in Neuroscience at the University of Florida College of Medicine in 2004. Subsequently, Kyle performed postgraduate work at the University of Florida College of Medicine in the Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology, first as a Postdoctoral Associate and then as a Research Assistant Professor. Currently he is a faculty member at Sanford Research in the Enabling Technologies Group and principle investigator in the Roux Lab. To help reveal protein functions and mechanisms of disease Dr. Roux created the BioID method that generates a history of protein associations in living cells. BioID is a transformative method that has been adopted by hundreds of research groups worldwide to study a wide variety of proteins and biological processes including cancer, infectious disease, diabetes and rare diseases. The Roux laboratory uses BioID to investigate the structure and function of the mammalian nuclear envelope in health and disease.

Areas of expertise:
Proximity proteomics, BioID, nuclear envelope biology, mammalian cell biology
