Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Arun Anantharam We study the molecular mechanisms of hormone trafficking, signaling, and secretion at the sympatho-adrenal synapse. Our goals are to understand these processes in the context of stress and stress transduction.  
Mark Banaszak Holl Targeted drug delivery for chemotherapeutics; mechanistic studies of polymer-based cell transfection systems; polymer/cell membrane interactions.  
Jim Bardwell Role of molecular chaperones and disulfide catalysts in protein folding Experimental evolution of protein folding   
Julie Biteen Single-Molecule Fluorescence, Live-Cell Biomedical Imaging, Plasmonics, Nanophotonics  
Charles L. Brooks III Theoretical and computational approaches are used to model biophysical processes from protein folding and virus assembly to protein-ligand/drug interactions.  
Dawen Cai From cells to network tracing neural circuit formation in the mouse brain  
Heather Carlson Our studies broadly focus on protein dynamics and the molecular recognition between ligands and proteins, from the fundamental biophysics of ligand binding to applied drug discovery.  
Zhan Chen Please check: http://www.umich.edu/~chenlab/  
Wei Cheng Molecular mechanisms of immunodeficiency caused by HIV; development of innovative prophylactic or therapeutic approaches; single-molecule manipulation, single-molecule fluorescence, optical tweezers  
Ari Gafni characterization of molecular mechanisms that feature in age-associated diseases including Alzheimer's disease and type-2 diabetes using advances biophysical approaches.  
Ajit Joglekar mechanochemical signal transduction, Biophysics of macromolecular protein complexes using in vivo high-resolution fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, and engineered assays.  
Sarah Keane RNA structure/function using NMR spectroscopy  
Tom Kerppola Our laboratory investigates the regulation of transcription in mammalian cells. We use a variety of imaging approaches to visualize protein interactions and modifications in living cells and animals.  
Dr. Raoul Kopelman 1. Nanobiotechnology tools for research on cancer stem cells and monitoring single bacterial growth 2. Nanomedicine: Enhanced imaging and therapy of tumors and heart disease using multifunctional nanodevices  
Kevin Kubarych Physical and Biophysical Chemistry: ultrafast nonlinear, multidimensional spectroscopy of biomolecules; optical control of biomolecular dynamics   
Nicolai Lehnert My research is centered on the detoxification of nitric oxide (NO) in biology, and how this relates to human health and chronic diseases.   
David Lubensky Computational biology, systems biology, mathematical modeling, dynamics of biochemical and genetic networks, mechanics and morphogenesis.  
Neil Marsh Enzyme mechanisms, protein engineering and antimicrobial peptide design  
Jens-Christian Meiners We study the role of mechanics in fundamental biological processes on the molecular level. Currently, we are mostly interested in how DNA moves in living cells to accomplish its biological functions.  
Jennifer Ogilvie Our research combines the tools of ultrafast and single molecule spectroscopy and nonlinear microscopy to explore the diverse length and time scales of biology: from single molecules to single organisms, on time scales of femtoseconds, to seconds.
