Welcome to Chu’s research group!
Our research focuses on probing the structure and dynamics of biomolecules, nano-materials and their hydration water or surface water through neutron and X-ray scattering spectroscopy and theoretical modeling.
We use both elastic and inelastic neutron and X-ray scattering techniques to study dynamics and structure of proteins and other biomolecules, as well as their interaction with the surrounding environment.
Sep. 2016: Our paper on tRNA/nanodiamond interactions is published in JPCB!
July 2016: Prof. Chu Rceived NSF Grant!
Oct. 2015: Our paper on the Dynamics of an Oligomeric Protein published in PNAS
