Our general research interest is in molecular structure-function relationships as applied to motility. The organizational level is that of large macromolecular complexes–the interface of single-particle biochemistry/biophysics and cell biology.

The particular areas of research are:

Energy transduction: the molecular mechanism of muscle contraction
Signal transduction: the initiation of muscle contraction by Ca2+
Physical biochemistry: the development of optical and magnetic spectroscopies to study the molecular dynamics and orientation
