Our group uses aspects of biophysical and materials chemistry to create new systems that permit biomolecular analytes and rare cells to be tracked and profiled. Nanomaterials play a central role in these efforts, as the unique properties of materials engineered at the nanoscale allow previously unreachable levels of sensitivity and specificity to be realized.
Workshop | September 6 | 12-2 p.m. | Dwinelle Hall, The Academic Innovation Studio/127D

Why do we have wisdom teeth? And why do so many people need to have them extracted? Teeth are extremely important biological structures that act as a physical interface between mammals and their environment. A great deal is known about the biology of how teeth erupt into the mouth. However, there still remains significant disagreement on the factors driving the evolution of tooth eruption in... More >
