Biography

Centered at the interface between biology, chemistry, and physics, the Lee Group utilizes surface-sensitive techniques such as atomic force microscopy, neutron and X-ray scattering, and Langmuir techniques to understand fundamental interactions between biomolecules and cellular membranes. Two-dimensional lipid monolayers, supported bilayers, and giant vesicles serve as model systems to probe medically-relevant topics that include lung surfactant functionality, antimicrobial peptide interactions, cell-protective and cell-permeable polymers, and lipid-antigen recognition observed by immune system proteins.
