CENTRIFUGE FORCE MICROSCOPE

RESEARCHTOPICS

Our group investigates how biological systems work at the nanoscale, and the physical laws that govern their behavior. We are particularly interested in how mechanical forces regulate biological processes ranging from hearing to bleeding. We developing and applying novel methods in single-molecule and nanoscale biophysics to accomplish this, combing approaches from fields ranging from molecular biology to optics. Some of our research topics and projects are described below.
