High Pressure X-ray Science Laboratory

김채운-자연과학부-교수-800x448

Research Interest

 Our lab studies biological and soft matter systems using high pressure and X-ray techniques.

 A novel high pressure technique, called high pressure cryocooling, has been developed for biophysical and X-ray science. The method was primarily developed for crystal cryoprotection in macromolecular crystallography. It was revealed that the underlying physics involves interesting phase behaviors of glassy water at low temperatures.

 Using the high pressure method, we will study the phase behaviors of glassy water, water-protein interactions, and protein functions and dynamics at cryogenic temperatures.
