We develop single-particle and single-molecule manipulation techniques, and use them for research aimed at both basic understanding and potential therapeutic approaches

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