Zhou Biophysics Group at FSU

The Zhou group carries out theoretical, computational, and experimental studies on the structure, dynamics, and function of proteins. Four main directions are: (1) kinetics and mechanisms of protein association; (2) crowding and confinement effects in cellular environments; (3) functional mechanisms of ion channels; and (4) structures and mechanisms of peptide self-assembly.
