My lab, broadly speaking, is interested in trying to understand interactions between cells and materials. Those could be materials that are present within living tissue or materials that we use for engineering purposes to try to do something of technological or therapeutic interest.
Analytical chemistry is a science in which materials are separated, identified and quantified. The techniques used in this branch of chemistry are defined as the chemical or physical principles employed to study a substance which is to be analyzed (the analyte).
There are two main things that we've worked on in the lab as regards to drug studies. One is identifying new combinations of drugs, and working on why a combination of drugs should work better than each alone.
Scientists at The University of Notre Dame have shown that disordered proteins have a structure very close to what would be expected for a truly random structure using a novel X-ray scattering (SAXS) analysis methodology.
Despite many advances in imaging technology and methodologies, neurohistology remains a key tool in neuroscience research. Recent developments in histotechnology capabilities mean it is now possible to image large tissue samples.

Osmometry is a method to determine a sample´s osmolality. This is the total number of osmotically active particles solved in a solution. These particles influence the colligative properties of the solution, which include the boiling and freezing point but also the vapor pressure for instance.
