Elias Puchner

A group of researchers at the School of Physics and Astronomy are working to uncover how cells and their signaling networks detect and respond to stimuli. Elias Puchner is new faculty member in the area of experimental biological physics. Through his research he intends to provide “a nano-scale view of cell communication.” Puchner says,“I find the ability of a cell to act as a sensor absolutely fascinating.” “For example, chemotactic cells (those responsible for movement in response to chemical stimuli) can sense a gradient of molecules.
