Spectroscopy and Microscopy

Michigan scientists working in spectroscopy are developing new physical methods to study quantitative aspects of biological systems, from molecules to cells. Interests range broadly from following protein and RNA dynamics over the complete range of timescales of protein function – from femtoseconds to seconds – by optical and infrared spectroscopy to monitoring the local site architecture of metal ions in biological systems – including both enzymes and cells – by X-ray spectroscopy.
