About Our Group


Pollack Group

Welcome to the Pollack Lab--a biophysics research group in the School of Applied and Engineering Physics at Cornell University.

Our interests are two-fold:

1. To study interesting and relevant biophysical problems involving proteins, RNA and DNA

2. To reveal the fundamental physical interactions at work by the creation and application of new experimental tools (often relying on micro/nanofabricated devices)

Links to some of our most recent abstracts are listed below:

Developing and applying new methods
to study the biological macromolecules:
RNA, DNA and proteins


Charge and biological molecules:
