At the Materials Research Laboratory I perform characterization of lipid-nucleic acid complexes using synchrotron X-ray diffraction and optical microscopy techniques.  I also work with mammalian cell cultures to assess toxicity and ex-vivo transfection efficiency (nucleic acid delivery and expression) of these materials.
