Profile

"Motivation: To bridge a gap between biology and physics...Our laboratory is engaged in the synthesis of novel polymers and polymer-peptide conjugates that modify the behavior of phospholipid membranes, by altering membrane permeability, rigidity, shape, or phase behavior. Our goal is to increase our understanding of how such changes can be achieved, as well as to produce useful molecular products for biological applications."
