    Research in Plain Language

    Biochemical reactions usually occur in fluid media. These fluids contain a high concentration of large molecules. The large molecules occupy a significant fraction of the fluid’s volume. Our research group studies how the “crowded” nature of the fluid affects the way particular molecules interact. We focus on how these fluids influence the rate and extent of biochemical reactions. Our group is also developing new methods to detect and measure these effects.
