Absolute, reproducible spectra

Broadband Coherent Anti-Stokes Raman Scattering (BCARS) microscopy – Opportunities for scientific discovery are wide-ranging. We currently focus on selected mechanistic questions in cancer biology, viral infection, and lipid metabolism, and on developing approaches for characterizing cell culture and biopharmaceutical formulation.




Liquid and Glass Dynamics – Opportunities on this project include development of novel approaches to characterize picosecond motions, refining and testing our ideas about liquid dynamics, and applying these ideas to solve problems in areas such as ionic liquids for battery applications and performance of drug eluting stents.

Stabilizing Dried Proteins for Pharmaceuticals – Opportunities  to enhance shelf life of freeze-dried vaccines and therapeutic proteins for use in developing nations.
