We elucidate the structures, activities, and dynamical properties of living matter, from single macromolecules to living systems. Our research uses state-of-the-art techniques in electron microscopy, diffraction, nuclear magnetic resonance, molecular dynamics, mass spectrometry, and single-molecule spectroscopy. Our department is highly interdisciplinary, at the interface of Biology, Chemistry, and Physics. See the Research page for more details.
