Welcome

The Payne Lab is working to understand the underlying molecular mechanisms by which cells interact with materials and then use this information to control cellular properties. Recent developments in a broad range of scientific disciplines including materials science, chemistry, microscopy, spectroscopy, cell biology, and structural biology have created a unique opportunity to probe this question directly. Students in the Payne Lab draw upon these scientific disciplines for a highly interdisciplinary research experience.
