AN INCLUSIVE
INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH GROUP

Electrochemistry, Bioanalytical Chemistry, and Nanoscience

 

 

RESEARCH
AREAS

ELECTROCHEMICAL SENSORS

 

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.

NANOPORE SENSING

 

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.

WHAT'S NEXT

 

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. Please visit the links to learn more about the lab’s cutting edge research and exciting new projects.

PATHWAY TO UNDERGRADUATE RESEARCH
FOR
FIRST GENERATION COLLEGE STUDENTS

The Pathway is a NSF-Funded program targeting the increased and sustained participation of first-generation college students in undergraduate research through the creation of a strong community and culture at UC.
