    Jonathan Burns, Associate Scientist (C)

    The Burns lab works at the intersection of radiochemistry, inorganic chemistry, materials science and nanotechnology. We are interested in taking advantage of the nuclear property of radioactive decay to help address problems spanning from radiopharmaceuticals to nuclear power. In particular, our focus is on 1) the investigation into emerging radioisotopes for medical applications, 2) the design of nanomaterials for radiopharmaceuticals, and 3) the development of new technologies for used nuclea...

    Jun Zhang, Scientist (C)

    I started my research career at Tsinghua University in Dr. Yongbin Yan's and Dr. Haimeng Zhou’s research group as a master student. During my masters degree I used FT-infrared and other spectroscopic methods to study protein unfolding and aggregation of RNAse A. In 2006 I joined the PhD program at the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill) in the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics. My work focused on protein dynamics probed by NMR relaxation, under supervision of Dr. Andrew Lee.
