The Subramaniam Lab engineers and studies colloidal, polymeric, and biologically active interfaces. Our current emphasis is on understanding biophysical processes through in vitro reconstitution (understanding by taking things apart and putting things back together!), and on applying this knowledge to design active biomimetic materials such as semi-synthetic cells. By design, many of our problems involve the study and use of biologically derived materials as well as inorganic and organic colloidal particles. Immediate applied aspects of our research aims to impact world health and health in the San Joaquin Valley by developing novel biomedical diagnostics. Browse these pages to learn more about our lab!
