We are interested in viruses, vaccines, single-particle and single-molecule techniques.  Our research is aimed at both basic understanding and potential therapeutic approaches

We are affiliated with Department of Biological Chemistry, Department of Biophysics, Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, and the Program in Biomedical Sciences at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Rotation projects are open to students from all these programs.
