Welcome to the Rhoades lab! We use single-molecule (SM) fluorescence techniques to study protein dynamics and protein-membrane interactions relevant to amyloid diseases, including Parkinsonism, Alzheimer's disease and diabetes.

Studying single protein molecules - either diffusing freely through solution (using confocal microscopy), or on a surface (using total internal reflection microscopy) - grants us an unprecedented level of detail about biological processes. Please see our Research page for more details.
