Biophysics & Biomedical Physics



The faculty of the Biophysics & Biomedical Physics cluster in our department is engaged in a wide range of basic and applied research projects. Research interests include the molecular organization of collagen, lipid rafts in biological membranes, the formation of Alzheimer plaques, the role of cellular ion pumps in wound healing, carbon nanotubes as biological detectors, optical imaging of neuronal activity, three-dimensional imaging of intact tissues, motility of cancer cells, and the optical detection of pathogens in water. The theoretical and experimental tools we bring to bear on these problems include molecular dynamics simulations, atomic force microscopy, cellular impedance measurements, dynamic light scattering, confocal microscopy, spectroscopy, electrophysiology and optical holography. Please contact individual faculty members for more details about ongoing research projects.
