Programmable Excitonic Systems on DNA Nanostructures
Excitons are mediators in both absorption and emission of light. Mastering the flow of excitons is the “holy grail” of light-harvesting systems, which include photovoltaic devices and microscopy probes. I am programming DNA nanostructures for control of nanoscale energy transport and investigation of new optical properties.

Dr. William P. Bricker
Ph.D., Energy, Environmental & Chemical Engineering, Washington University in St. Louis

Excitonics of Multi-chromophore-DNA Assemblies
I am designing and analyzing DNA-based multi-chromophore assemblies for nanoscale energy transfer, light-harvesting and biosensing applications.

Dr. Eric Danielson
Ph.D., Pharmacology and Toxicology, Medical College of Wisconsin

TBD

Dr. Hyungmin Jun
Ph.D., Engineering Mechanics, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST)

Structural DNA Nanotechnology
I am developing sequence design procedures to render arbitrary 3D nanostructures using synthetic DNA.

Dr. Tyson Shepherd
Ph.D., Biochemistry, University of Iowa

DNA and RNA Nanotechnology
I am developing design and synthesis approaches to engineer structured DNA and RNA assemblies for applications in biomolecular science and technology.

Eike-Christian Wamhoff
Ph.D., thesis to be published, Biochemistry, Free University of Berlin

DNA Nanotechnology for Targeted Delivery
I am interested in using DNA nanotechnology to develop programmable delivery platforms. The controlled organization of ligands and cargo provides unique opportunities to engineer cell-specific targeting, intracellular trafficking and cargo release.
