Title: The Physics of Life : Molecular Machines

Date and Time: January 6 2016; 5:00 PM

Venue: C. V. Raman Auditorium, Lecture Hall Complex, IISER Pune

 

Dr. Hoffmann is Professor of Physics at Wayne State University. His main research interests are nano-­mechanics and biophysics. Prof. Hoffmann uses variants of Atomic Force Microscope to marry these two research areas to reveal mechanics at the level of single molecules. In 2012, Prof. Hoffmann has written  a book called Life’s Ratchet which is being received well both by the scientific community as well as popular science writers.
