Research Projects

Nathan Hudson studies the exciting field of molecular biophysics.  Work in the Hudson lab uses techniques including protein engineering, centrifuge force microscopy, FRET and microfluidics to understand how mechanical force regulates biological function.  Projects involve measuring the biomechanical properties of blood coagulation proteins and determining the force-depending binding kinetics of adhesion molecules.  There are both graduate- and undergraduate-level projects in the lab and numerous students have won awards for their research with Dr. Hudson.
