Welcome to the Single Molecule Biophysics group at UCLA!

Our group applies cutting-edge techniques from fluorescence to studying what is (of course, arguably) life's most important class of molecules: proteins. Proteins are life's workhorse, and they have a hand in doing just about anything significant that happens in living organisms. Protein are responsible for the replication of DNA, they are the engines of metabolic pathways, and more generally, a class of proteins called "enzymes" are absolutely vital to catalyze biochemical reactions necessary for life.

Our backgrounds are varied, and though many of us have the traits of rigorous experimentalists, our work often poses challenging theoretical problems as well. For more information on our research, contact us or browse through our website!
