Understanding molecular structure at the atomic level in terms of concepts and physical laws. Systems of interest range in size from atoms to fullerenes to protein complexes. We have particular strengths in methodology development using both experimental and theoretical approaches.
Chemical Physics - understanding molecules at the atomistic level using experiment and theory, molecular photophysics, knowledge across length scales.
New Methods for Physical Analysis - determining structure, function and dynamics of biological systems; technology for health and quality of life diagnostics.
