May 2017-: Currently we have positions for graduate students, undergraduate students, and postdocs to do research in our lab.
May 26th, 2017: Congratulations to Iman Jeddi for successfully defending her dissertation on Computational Modeling and Analysis of Single-Stranded DNA Aptamers for Biosensing Applications. Dr. Jeddi is the latest PhD student to graduate from the Saiz lab.
Spring Quarter 2017: Prof. Saiz will be teaching two courses in Spring: BIM 152 (Molecular Control of Biosystems) for undergraduate students and BIM 189C (Computational tools and Applications in Bioengineering and Biomedicine) for undergraduate students.
March 2017: Our latest paper on “Three-dimensional modeling of single stranded DNA hairpins for aptamer-based biosensors” has been accepted in Scientific Reports.
February 2017: Check out Prof. Saiz article on “How Will Kinetics and Thermodynamics Inform Our Future Efforts to Understand and Build Biological Systems?” published in Cell Systems; other authors include Jennifer Doudna.
February 2017: Our latest paper on “Predicting human olfactory perception from chemical features of odor molecules” has just been published in Science.
