Biomolecular Science & Engineering

Biomolecular Science and Engineering focuses on the structural, quantitative and functional characterization of biomolecules, including proteins, nucleic acids, and lipids, as well as the design of custom biomolecules, assemblies and devices with applications in biomedical research, drug design, sustainable energy production, bioremediation, and environment. Current research interests include protein folding, engineering and design, controlled macromolecular self-assembly, molecular motors and actuators, electrophysiology, recombinant and hybrid biosensors, lipid membranes, semi-synthetic cells, and biologically-inspired engineered materials (biomimicry).
