We develop a method to manipulate ion-channels using iron-oxide nanoparticles and AC magnetic field. This will be used in neuroscience to study neuronal networks. to study enzyme dynamics at the single molecule level. The work would include nanoparticle surface chemistry, cell culture and performing cell measurements.
Disciplines: Structural Biology, Physiology, Physics, Chemistry, Biophysics, Biomedical Sciences, Biological Sciences
Student Skill-Set Needed: Commitment to research, serious interest in project, (usually min.3cr = 12hrs/wk); basic computing skills, interest in quantitative science and physics, prior experience in surface chemistry desired, but can train.
Compensation: Academic Credit, Salary / Stipend, Work Study, summer salary dep. on experience
Available: Fall, Spring, Summer
