The Zhou group uses theory, computation, and experiment to address a range of topics in molecular and cellular biophysics. Four main areas are: (1) liquid-liquid phase separation; (2) binding kinetics of intrinsically disordered proteins; (3) functional mechanisms of ion channels and other membrane proteins; and (4) self-assembly of peptides.
