Department of Biochemistry collaborates with Department of Physics at UNI

This summer, three undergraduates from the Deparment of Physics at the University of Northern Iowa collaborated with the Department of Biochemistry at Iowa to study cells and their natural self-repairing mechanisms. This unique partnership aims to understand the underlying mechanisms involved in DNA repair. Dr. Ali Tabei, Associate Professor of physics at UNI, is overseeing the three undergraduates research and has been involved in the project for more than three years. Dr. Maria Spies' lab at Iowa uses single-molecule microscopy to study real-time biochemical interactions involved in DNA repair.
