Collaborating with lots of great scientists is not only productive, but fun too. Please click on their pictures to link to their websites.
First, there's the bacterial biophysics collaboration:
Assistant Professor of Physics, Rollins College, FL; formerly HHMI Postdoctoral Fellow, Mount Holyoke College Departments of Chemistry and Physics
After earning a Ph.D. in Physics at the University of Arizona, Dr. Murdaugh came to MHC to apply her extensive AFM experience to sticky Bdellovibrio questions (ha ha ha, pun intended). She also mentored several undergraduate research students, team-taught General Chemistry, and helped to redesign some of the General Chemistry curriculum to include more physics, particularly thermodynamics and spectroscopy.
And I have great DNA collaborators too:
Mark C Williams
Erving Professor of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University, and Director of Harvard/Dana-Farber Program in Cancer Chemical Biology
Among many other fascinating and important things, the Verdine group studies base excision repair. Greg was kind enough to welcome me into his lab during my sabbatical at the Radcliffe Institute 2006-2007.
