Erwin J.G. Peterman 2014 International Biophysics Congress

Erwin J.G. Peterman

Erwin Peterman is professor of physics of living systems, university research chair at VU University Amsterdam. He did his MSc in Molecular Sciences at Wageningen University, his PhD in biophysics of photosynthesis at VU University Amsterdam. After postdocs at UC San Diego and Stanford University he started his own research group at VU University. His research interests are applying single-molecule tools (in particular optical tweezers and fluorescence microscopy) to unravel the molecular basis of life. His current research topics include DNA and protein-DNA interactions, motor proteins in vitro and in vivo and trans-membrane protein diffusion. He has recently cofounded a spin-off company, LUMICKS, that designs, builds and markets advanced correlative tweezers fluorescence microscopes.
