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.  
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 inhibitor design.  
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  
Carol Fierke Catalytic mechanisms and inhibition of metalloenzymes and ribozymes. Cellular metal homeostasis and toxicity using biochemistry, genetics, cell biology and imaging.  
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.  
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.

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. Simply, can you turn genes on and off by pulling ont he DNA?  
Alex NInfa We study natural signal transduction mechanisms as well as synthetic biology, or the development of novel genetic systems.
