"Everything that living things do can be understood in terms of the jigglings and wigglings of atoms."
― Richard P. Feynman
WE see atoms & molecules in
The envelop theme of our research program is turning the classical energy landscape view into a practical cutting-edge research tool to explore the natural phenomena that involve an intricate interplay amongst atoms/molecules/cells. The program focuses on frontline challenges in the underlying areas of physical chemistry, chemical physics, biophysical chemistry, and condensed matter physics. The primary goal of our research is to advance our understanding of complex biological regulatory processes of macromolecules and their adaptation under different environments using the fundamental concepts of statistical mechanics. In any stressed situation, how an at-risk energy landscape of a biomolecular system or a biological network is diseased and reshaped to a 'new normal', all timely and relevant global questions we ask.
