the McLain Group!
Picture by Ric Gillams (November 2016)
We are a multi-disciplinary group interested in the biophysics of how real biological systems function and form on the atomic and molecular level.
Our group is interested in understanding the interactions between biological molecules in physiologically relevant environments at the level where these interactions occur - the atomic and molecular level. By using a combination of both experimental and computational techniques to probe the interplay between biological molecules from the angstrom scale (10-10 metres (Å)) to the nanoscale (10-9 metres)) we are working towards a better understanding of how biological processes occur in nature.
