Nano-Precision Mechanobiology Group

Bringing nanoscale techniques toward single-molecule mechanobiology

Biology is coordinated interactions of molecules. We investigate the mechanics of biological systems with nanoscale approaches at the single-molecule level. We employ existing techniques like molecular tweezers, fluorescence imaging, and nano/microfabrication, and develop new methods when necessary.


We are actively looking for new graduate students, postdocs, and undergraduate interns with a diverse background in physics, biology, chemistry, and engineering. If you are interested in joining us, please e-mail Min Ju Shon (mjshon at for more information.
