Biomolecular Nanodesign

Welcome to the Andersen Lab for Biomolecular Nanodesign

We design nano-scale devices using biomolecules as building blocks. Our research aims at understanding the fundamental principles of how biomolecules fold into unique and functional shapes and at using this insight to guide the design of novel nanoscale devices for both basic science and technological applications. This website provides an overview of our research group and our research and teaching activities. Illustration by Cody Geary
