Research Interests

The Marriott Lab operates at the interface of chemistry, biology, medicine and engineering, is focused on understanding the molecular regulation of cellular processes and function, and improving human health. Active research projects underway in my group include establishing new principles and techniques for high-contrast imaging and optical manipulation of specific proteins in living cells and tissue, developing new smart biomaterials that mimic the extracellular organisms. The ultimate goal of these studies is to understand the molecular regulation of specific processes within living systems over multiple scales of biological organization, space and time, and to use this knowledge to develop drugs and therapies to improve human health.
