Our group develops and applies cutting-edge techniques from fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence microscopy, and biological imaging to studying one of life's most important class of molecules: proteins. Proteins are life's workhorse, and they play a role in nearly all processes in living organisms. Proteins are responsible for the replication of DNA (and the replication of cells); they are the engines of metabolic pathways providing organisms with energy; they are the building blocks of molecular motors that propel cells through space; and there is even a class of proteins called "enzymes" that are absolutely vital for catalyzing other biochemical reactions necessary for life.
One of today's most pressing challenges is for scientists to better understand the behavior and function of proteins.
The members of our lab have varied backgrounds, having been drawn from numerous other disciplines outside of straight chemistry or biology. We have physicists, mathematicians, biochemists, and computer scientists on hand, and we all combine our efforts toward exploring the mysterious microscopic world.
