Faculty Member Brief Research Description
Mark Banaszak Holl Targeted drug delivery for chemotherapeutics; mechanistic studies of polymer-based cell transfection systems; polymer/cell membrane interactions.  
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.  
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  
Ajit Joglekar mechanochemical signal transduction, Biophysics of macromolecular protein complexes using in vivo high-resolution fluorescence microscopy, image analysis, and engineered assays.  
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  
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.   
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.  
Vince Pecoraro Clarifying metallobiochemistry, from new cellular optical imaging agents to the design of metalloproteins for studying heavy metal (e.g., Pb(II)) toxicity, electron transfer and catalysis.   
Jim Penner-Hahn The role of metal ions in biological systems. Spectroscopic characterization of metal ions and metalloproteins.  
Roseanne Sension Time-resolved spectroscopic techniques are used to study reaction mechanism in complicated biological systems focused currently on B12 dependent enzymes.   
Duncan Steel Studies on the origin of cellular toxicity of amyloidogenic diseases such as Alzheimers  
Muneesh Tewari Developing minimally invasive approaches to study human disease biology with high time-resolution for early detection and monitoring of cancer   
Sarah Veatch We are interested in understanding how the physical properties of membrane lipids influence function at the cell plasma membrane.  
Nils Walter We study a multitude of biologically active non-protein coding RNAs by single molecule fluorescence microscopy in vitro and in live cells  
Shaomeng Wang Small-molecule drug design, synthesis, discovery, evaluation and development; new computational methods for drug design.  
Kevin Wood Our group combines tools from theoretical physics with experiments in cell and molecular biology to study the interplay between environmental dynamics, the behavior of intracellular networks, and the evolution of heterogeneous cell populations.
