Research & Publications
We take an interdisciplinary approach, which includes cell-free biochemistry, single molecule biophysics, and super-resolution optical imaging of single events/single molecules in the cell and in cell-free formats. The overall goal is to understand transport pathways form structural mechanism to cellular physiology. We have a strong interest in new lab members who bring backgrounds in protein biochemistry, organic chemistry, biophysics, and bio-engineering.
