MICROSCOPY We build our own microscopes! We have three highly modular microscopes with extensive experimental capabilities:
a Total Internal Reflection Fluorescence Microscope (TIRFM) for single molecule studies, a light sheet microscope to image 5 mm or
more thick samples, and a multiphoton microscope for time resolved two-photon imaging. Journal of microscopy, 270(3), 261-271, 2018.

MOLECULAR BIOLOGY We purify and characterize our own proteins! We have complete facility for E. coli based molecular biology
and protein purification including autoclave, shaker, AKTA FPLC, SORVALL centrifuge, -80 freezer, -20 freezer, 4 degree refrigerator,
cell disruptor, micro-centrifuge, fumehood, two-stage water deionizer, PCR, nanodrop, and ice maker. Protein Expression and Purification, 148, 59-67, 2018.
COMPUTATION We develop our own analyses and simulations! We have multiple high end computers for data analysis and simulations
(12 core/24 thread, 512 MB SSD, 64 GB RAM). Physics of Life Reviews, 13, 107-137, 2015.
BEYOND COLLAGEN DEGRADATION Our multidisciplinary research laboratory allows for exploration of transformative research
ideas because we do core sample preparations, experiments, and analyses ourselves.
