|BioInterfaces and Cell Mechanics Laboratory
Research in the BioInterfaces and Cellular Mechanics Laboratory focuses on two different but related areas.
The cell and molecular biophysics
groups focus on how mechanical and biochemical signals are transduced across cell membranes to regulate cell and tissue functions. Our approaches use simulations; single molecule studies; and biomechanical studies of proteins, cells, and tissues. We collaborate closely with cell and developmental biologists as well as with clinicians.
The biointerfaces group studies fundamental molecular forces and their central roles in a range of applications in biotechnology, from drug delivery to biosensors to adhesion. We address relationships between surface chemistry, intermolecular and surface forces, and how those forces influence biological functions at interfaces.
Arka Dan received a 2014 Widiger Fellowship. Congratulations Arka!
