Chris Fischer, Ph.D.
Director of Engineering Physics Program
A brief review of the biophysics program within our department, emphasizing recent characterizations of DNA-interacting molecular motors. This includes the nucleosome binding and repositioning activities of the chromatin remodeler ISWI and the identification of the energetically rate-limiting process in nucleosome sliding. In addition to challenging the standard models for DNA damage detection, the results highlight the importance of assay development and applied mathematics in enzymology.
