Welcome to the BU Nano-Bio Interface Lab!
We are interested in the design, implementation, and characterization of new tools for imaging and manipulation of “hard” (inorganic) and “soft” (biological) materials. One aim is to produce hybrid materials that combine the interesting electronic/optical properties of inorganic materials with the structural properties of biological materials. We are currently also developing new probes and sensing schemes to characterize the function and dynamics of individual biological molecules and complexes. The ultimate goal of these studies is to generate reliable tools that can grant insight into fundamental biological processes on a single molecule level.
