Peter B Allen Assistant Professor


Professor Allen specializes in applications of DNA nanotechnology for engineering useful materials and sensors. His PhD projects applied microfabricated instruments to biological samples including mitochondria and synaptic vesicles. Current projects involve the use of designed DNA reactions as well as aptamers (DNA selected to bind a target molecule). Future projects involve integrating DNA nanotechnology into analytical instruments applicable both to the laboratory and to low-resource settings.
