goal of our research is to investigate the thermodynamic, transport, and
biophysical principles that underlie separation
processes for biological macromolecules, and
to exploit this improved
understanding in order to develop novel separation methods. We are interested in separation
methods for peptides, proteins, polynucleotides, and viruses, and
the use of these methods for industrial-scale purification, for proteomic analysis, for biomedical diagnostic assays, and for
viral clearance of pharmaceuticals. We are also interested in the large-scale sorting
such as carbon nanotubes. Further details of the work being performed in the Frey
Biopolymer Separation Laboratory, as well as webpages
for courses taught by Professor Frey at UMBC, can be found at the links provided above.
