Molecular Biophysics poster session, Winter 2018

Living cells use non-equilibrium mechanical and chemical interactions on the molecular scale to self-organize into complex machines that perform essential tasks on single-cell and multiple-cell scales. We use the tools of computational biophysics to investigate mechanical processes in cells.

Student projects include:

  • Computational models of the axon cytoskeleton

  • Computational models of nerve growth cone motility

  • Experimental assay to investigate molecular motor-based transport; co-advised by Dr. Nathan Kuwada

  • Developing new physics/biophysics educational materials and methods
