Welcome to the Dougan research group
We are developing single molecule manipulation techniques and neutron diffraction to explore the physics of living systems. These powerful techniques are used to study biomolecular self-assembly and the structure and dynamics of molecules in aqueous solutions, in both simple and complex systems.
Current Research Interests:
Single molecule manipulation using force spectroscopy
Molecular mechanisms of cryopreservation
Polypeptide chain aggregation
We are based in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Leeds. We are also members of the Astbury Centre for Structural and Molecular Biology.
