Dr. Balaraman KalyanaramanBalaraman Kalyanaraman, PhD

Harry R. & Angeline E. Quadracci Professor in Parkinson's Research
Director, Free Radical Research Center
Chairman and Professor of Biophysics

Dr. Kalyanaraman's research involves detection of free radicals by EPR spin-trapping, fluorescence, optical stopped-flow, and HPLC techniques, mechanisms of signal transduction and cell signaling, and mechanisms of disease.


Dr. Bill AntholineWilliam E. Antholine, PhD

Associate Professor of Biophysics

Dr. Antholine's research interests involve the use of EPR spectroscopy to determine the ligation of metals (primarily, copper) in proteins and complex biological systems.



Dr. Jimmy B. FeixJimmy B. Feix, PhD

Professor of Biophysics

The Feix lab utilizes site-directed spin labeling (SDSL) EPR spectroscopy and other biophysical and biochemical techniques to work on problems related to the membrane interactions of peptides and proteins and the structure and dynamics of membrane proteins.



Dr. Neil HoggNeil Hogg, PhD

Professor of Biophysics
Assistant Dean of Recruitment, Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
Director, Redox Biology Program

Dr. Hogg's research interests currently focus on nitric oxide signaling, sickle cell disease, and nitrite as a source of nitric oxide.


Dr. James S. HydeJames S. Hyde, PhD

The James S. Hyde Professor of Biophysics
Director, National Biomedical EPR Center

Dr. Hyde's current research focuses on functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI) in rat deep brain structures. 


Dr. Andrzej JesmanowiczAndrzej Jesmanowicz, PhD

Professor of Biophysics

Dr. Jesmanowicz has specialized in rigorous computer-aided design of radio frequency coils for MRI and has written special pulse programs that permit acquisition of very high resolution images with voxel dimensions as small as 40 microns.


Dr. Candice KlugCandice S. Klug, PhD

Professor of Biophysics
Director, Biophysics Graduate Program

Dr. Klug's research interests currently center on protein structure and dynamics. She uses the site-directed spin labeling (SDSL) EPR spectroscopy technique to study the functional dynamics of bacterial membrane and retinal proteins.


Dr. Kevin KochKevin Koch, PhD

Associate Professor of Biophysics and Radiology

Dr. Koch's research involves metal artifact reduction methods for MRI and application development at 7T.


Dr. Shi-Jiang LiShi-Jiang Li, PhD

Professor of Biophysics
Director, Center for Imaging Research

At present, Dr. Li has two NIH-funded research projects: Imaging Cocaine Valuations in the Human Brain by fMRI and A Composite MR Neuroimaging Marker for Alzheimer's Disease. He also collaborates with Dr. Anthony Hudetz (Department of Anesthesiology) on General Anesthetics and Cerebral Cortical Sensory Integration.


Dr. Andrew NenckaAndrew S. Nencka, PhD

Assistant Professor of Biophysics

One aspect of Dr. Nencka's research work has been to leverage the phase of acquired images, along with varying receive coil sensitivities, to further spatially encode the acquired data. With the assumption of real-valued images—an assumption often made for partial Fourier image reconstruction—this insight theoretically enables acceleration factors of 2N for an array of N coils.


Dr. W. Karol SubczynskiW. Karol Subczynski, PhD, DSc

Professor of Biophysics

For more than 25 years Dr. Subczynski has investigated the physical properties of lipid bilayer membranes. Presently, his work is focused on the study of the formation of raft domains in model and biological membranes. 


Dr. Jeannette Vasquez-VivarJeannette Vasquez-Vivar, PhD

Professor of Biophysics
Associate Director, Redox Biology Program

The general interest of Dr. Vasquez-Vivar's lab is to investigate cell-specific redox mechanisms disrupting normal cellular homeostasis. They have focused on three different systems: fetal brain, heart, and endothelial cells.
