BioPhysics Group

We apply biophysics with the goal to improve human health by examining detailed aspects of physiology and pathophysiology. 

The overarching research goal in the Mayer Lab is to apply our passion for biophysics towards improving human health. We do so by contributing to the molecular understanding of disease, developing sensitive diagnostic assays and sensors, as well as characterizing individual protein molecules for applications in biomarker detection, routine protein analysis, personalized medicine, and proteomics. To this end, we often take inspiration from nature to develop biophysical assays, methods, and tools that enable molecular-scale interrogations with unprecedented information content, sensitivity, and speed.

Join Our Group!

We are currently searching for highly motivated Masters and PhD students, as well as postdoctoral researchers, who are interested in joining our research group.  If you would like to apply, please send a copy of your CV along with a letter of motivation to We look forward to hearing from you!
