The Fordyce Lab is focused on developing new instrumentation and assays for making quantitative, systems-scale biophysical measurements of molecular interactions.  These tools have many diverse applications, but share a common approach: using techniques and ideas from physics and engineering to improve our understanding of fundamental biological processes.

Current research in the lab is focused on two main areas: using microfluidic tools they have developed to build ground-up quantitative models of how gene expression is regulated, and developing new tools to transform how scientists explore protein-protein interactions.
