Chemistry and single molecule measurement at bio/nano interfaces

The central theme of our research efforts is to measure and control single biomolecules and biologically inspired nanostructures at interfaces. We are using and developing sophisticated nanoscience tools to greatly improve understanding of biomolecules on model biosensor surfaces. We are ultilizing these insights to create biosensors with substantially improved reliability, sensitivity and selectivity.
