Welcome to the Sahai Group
Our research focuses on the fundamental physical-chemical interactions between biological molecules or cells and mineral surfaces in processes relevant to the origins of life and bone biomineralization. We use a range of experimental, spectroscopic, cell culture and computational approaches to address specific questions in these areas of research.
