Single-Molecule & Single-Cell Nanometric Biophysics
Our lab works at the interface between physics, nanotechnology, and biology. We combine quantitative super-resolved fluorescence microscopy, single-particle tracking, single-molecule fluorescence techniques and statistical physics and modeling to study biological systems at various scales, ranging from individual biological macromolecules (proteins, DNA, RNA) to individual cells/bacteria. We aim to understand quantitatively the fundamental physics that controls the central processes that remain unknown/unclear. We are interested in building cutting-edge biophysical tools to boost advances in biology and to gain fresh views of nature, and observing biology and nature to inspire new physics and novel ways to apply physics.
Congratulations to Venkata for his co-first-authored paper being accepted for publication in ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces (impact factor = 8.758).
Congratulations to Venkata for being awarded the Hughes Graduate Fellowship.
We received a new grant from the Arkansas Biosciences Institute to study the mechanics of bacterial cytoplasm (PI: Dr. Wang).
Congratulations to Venkata and Ariel for their paper being accepted for publication at Applied and Environmental Microbiology!
