Clarkson Professors in Virtual Journal of Biological Physics Research

An article by Clarkson University Associate Professor of Physics Igor Sokolov and Professor of Biology Craig Woodworth was chosen for the July 15 issue of Virtual Journal of Biological Physics Research, a journal that features frontier research articles across disciplines related to biological physics. Their article, "Detection of Surface Brush on Biological Cells in Vitro with Atomic Force Microscopy," was originally published in Applied Physics Letters.

The professors say that this is a great opportunity because the article will now be sent to all the members of the bio-related community, which could increase the visibility their work enormously.

Sokolov received a Ph.D. from the Soviet Bureau of Standards (Russian NIST), Russia, and completed his postdoctoral work at the University of Toronto. His research interests include biological physics, functional nano/biomaterials and interfaces, and atomic force microscopy.

Woodworth earned his M.S. in zoology from North Carolina State University, a Ph.D. in cell biology from the University of Vermont and completed his postdoctoral training in molecular virology at Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine. His research investigates how infection with high-risk human papillomaviruses contributes to cervical cancer.
