Proteins are nature's nanomachines

Project ID: 39

Supervisor(s): Paul Curmi

Proteins are nature's nanomachines.  Our research involves determining how proteins operate as machines using the tools of modern physics.  Our key questions include: How do protein motors work; Does quantum mechanics play a non-trivial role in biology; How do proteins switch between stable structures; and How does a protein know where it is in a cell?
