Oas Lab


We are a highly collaborative group dedicated to finding exciting ways to apply concepts   from physical chemistry to important biological phenomena such as protein folding, protein translocation, bacterial infection, ribonucleoprotein assembly and cellular signaling.  Our operating principle is that basic thermodynamics & kinetics can reveal interesting biological mechanisms if we choose the right experiment!
