Presentation Transcript

  1. F z Overview of lab research • 1. PROTEIN MECHANICS – from single molecules to materials • Relating sequence and structure to mechanical function • Structural proteins: collagen and elastin • “Made to order” and harvested from cells • Characterized with optical tweezers • Molecular blueprint for viscoelasticity Collagen triple helix • 2. MOLECULAR MOTORS • Designing and experimentally characterizing novel protein-based motors • Monte Carlo simulations of molecular motors

  2. Lab members PROTEIN MECHANICS Mike Kirkness Biophysics BSc student Construction of centrifuge force microscope NaghmehRezaei Physics PhD student BSc, Tehran Collagen stretching Marjan Shayegan Chemistry PhD student MSc, Sharif Microrheology of collagen Andrew Wieczorek Research associate MSc, UBC Collagen characterization and modification MOLECULAR MOTORS Nancy Forde aka “da boss” Laleh Samii Physics PhD student MSc, Sharif Molecular motors experiments and simulation Martin Zuckermann Collaborator Molecular motors simulations
