Cornell University, Ph.D. Ithaca, NY, 1999
 
Research Interests: Professor Papoian's group is striving to understand complex biological phenomena based on fundamental physical and chemical principles. His current research interests include DNA packing in cells of higher organisms and cellular cytoskeleton and motility.
Students and postdocs in the Papoian group use theoretical physical chemistry techniques, including advanced computational methods, to study biological processes at multiple scales, from single protein functional dynamics and chromatin folding and stability to cell-level processes, such as stochastic signal transduction and regulation of cell motility. Group members are exposed to diverse areas of equilibrium and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics, polymer physics, computational protein modeling and bioinformatics.
