Sztain Lab


Biological processes occur in a highly dynamic fashion involving molecular diffusion, binding events, and chemical reactions, spanning a vast range of spatiotemporal scales. These processes can be described mathematically to characterize and predict the behavior of matter under given conditions. The Sztain research group integrates approaches from chemistry, biology, physics, mathematics and computer science to develop novel strategies for understanding dynamic biochemical systems, and applies these methods to design molecules for  addressing imminent environmental and medical challenges. We integrate a variety of computational and experimental techniques, and use artificial intelligence to streamline methods for maximum efficiency.
