Katie Receives Shirley Chan Travel Award for the 2016 American Physical Society March Meeting

The Division of Biological Physics has awarded Katherine Niessen a Shirley Chan travel award so she may present her talk on the changes in intramolecular dynamics with allosteric mutation and their relationship to the change in catalytic rate.  Congratulations Katie!

Katie gets Platform Talk at 2016 Biophysical Society Meeting!!

Katie's abstract was chosen for a platform presentation for the 2016 BPS meeting! She'll be speaking on Wednesday March 2nd 8:30 am in 502B at the LA convention center.

New Paper Published in Biophysical Reviews!

Our article, "Terahertz optical measurements of correlated motions with possible allosteric function," K.A. Niessen, Mengyang Xu and A.G. Markelz, Biophysical Reviews, 7, p 201-216 (2015). is now out. It includes several discussions on relating the terahertz spectra of proteins to the internal motions.  In particular we introduce the idea of decomposing the vast vibrational density of states into essential motions. 

Mengyang awarded the SPIE Optics and Photonics Education Scholarship !!!

Mengyang Xu was awarded the SPIE - the international society for optics and photonics Education Scholarship yesterday!  We are so proud of Mengyang and his work. Well done! 

Nigel is awarded the 2014 Sekula Scholarship!!

Congratulations to Nigel Michki for winning the 2014 Dr. Stanley T. Sekula Memorial Scholarship!

Here is Nigel setting up temperature profiling with Prof. Snell at HWI and forgetting about NOT putting a plastic bag over his head :)


Mengyang presents invited talk at 2014 IRMMW and THz Waves!
