AN INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH GROUP
Electrochemistry, Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Nanoscience
We develop specific electrochemical sensing platforms to monitor the dynamics of small molecules in biology and the environment.
NUCLEIC ACID BIOPHYSICS
We develop methods to probe, understand, and control nucleic acid structure on surfaces.
We develop new methods to employ protein channels as sensor elements with high spatial resolution.
NEW SENSING PARADIGMS
We develop methods to push the spatial and temporal resolution of specific chemical detection strategies to enable new studies.
SCAN PROBE METHODS
We develop and employ a variety of scan probe methodologies for the spatially resolved studies of surface reactivity and biological systems.
Our highly collaborative group is always challenging each other to think about and create what's next.
Welcome to the R. J. White Group @ UC. We are an established collaborative research group that moved to the Department of Chemistry at the University of Cincinnati in the fall of 2017. Our research lies at the intersection of nanoscience, electrochemistry and the biological interface. Research interests in our group focus on the development of new (bio)analytical methods to probe chemical and biological systems with unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions afforded by working at the nanoscale. The scope of this research is quite broad, ranging from studies of fundamental chemical and biological phenomena to the development of applied sensor technologies. As such, students in the group can expect to gain valuable interdisciplinary laboratory experience.
