" Probing Nature's Nano-Machines with Light "
 
HA Taekjip
Bloomberg Distinguished Professor, Departments of Physics and Biomedical Engineering, Johns Hopkins University
Investigator, Howard Hughes Medical Institute

 
Time:  1 pm, Apr 26 (Thu) 

Abstract

Did you know that proteins are nano-scale machines that help us think, dance and keep the threat of cancer at bay? Did you know that biology is a new research frontier for physicists? In this talk, Professor Ha will discuss how biophysicists are using light-based tools to poke and examine Nature’s nano-machines, one molecule at a time, uncovering the amazing acrobatic abilities that are essential for all forms of life.

 

 

하택집 박사는 물리학을 기반으로 한 새로운 생명현상 탐구 영역을 개척해 가고 있는 세계적인 과학자로, 형광공명에너지전달(FRET) 현상을 생체 단분자 연구에 최초로 적용함으로써 해당 분야의 연구에 획기적 진보를 가져왔다.이러한 업적을 인정하여 US National Academy of Sciences는 하택집 박사를 회원으로 2015년에 선출하였다.    
[Professor Ha uses sophisticated physical techniques to manipulate and visualize the movements of single molecules to understand basic biological processes involving DNA and other molecules. His research pushes the limits of single-molecule detection methods to study protein–nucleic acid and protein-protein complexes and the mechanical regulation of their functions. ]
