The primary 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 of nanoparticles 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.
