Welcome to the Kang Lab!
The molecular Biophysics and Nanobiology (mBNb) Lab at UCF NanoScience Technology Center and Physics Department investigates fundamental mechanisms that regulate the mechanical, structural, and physicochemical properties of actin cytoskeleton- the essential component of living cells. A current focus of the lab is to understand how complex intracellular as well as extracellular environments alter actin biophysics and mechanobiology at the nanoscale. Our research integrates multi-disciplinary approaches including molecular biophysics, protein biochemistry, polymer physics, and nanobiology.
Research positions are currently available for motivated PhD students. Candidates with background in (bio)physics, biochemistry, molecular biology, or nanoscience are encouraged to apply.
If you are interested in joining our research team, please contact Dr. Ellen Kang directly with your CV and a brief research statement.
