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, especially scanning probe microscopy to position and measure single molecules with nanometer precision. The greatly improved understanding and control of biomolecules at the nanoscale are helping to unravel key biological functions and develop ultra-sensitive biosensors.
