About the Ferreon Lab

Our lab is interested in two major areas:

  • The study of intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs) and their role in protein's function and dysfunction. We are focused on IDPs involved in stem cell biology and neurodegenerative diseases.
  • Technique development and their applications in the study of protein behavior, e.g. single molecule fluorescence and NMR spectroscopic techniques.
