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)
