We are pleased to announce the joint appointment in our department of Prof. Taekjip “TJ” Ha. His primary appointment is as a Bloomberg Distinguished Professor in the Department of Biophysics (KSAS), the Department of Biomedical Engineering (WSE), and the Department of Biophysics and Biophysical Chemistry (SOM). Prof. Ha is a world leader in single-molecule biology and intracellular imaging. He is known for developing sophisticated physical techniques to manipulate and visualize the movements of single molecules in order to understand basic biological processes. In particular, he focuses on DNA transactions such as replication, recombination, and chromatin assembly, which may eventually lead
to answers in addressing cancer and infectious diseases.
