<h2>Principal investigator</h2>

<h3>Steven Block</h3>

<img src="img/steve.jpg" title="Steve Block" alt="A picture of Steve Block" />

<p>Professor Block holds the Ascherman Chair in the Depts. of Applied Physics and Biology at Stanford.
He's best-known as a founder of the field known as "single molecule biophysics."
Block holds degrees from Oxford and Caltech, and served as faculty at the Rowland Institute and Harvard, then Princeton, prior to joining Stanford in 1999.
Block is a member of the National Academy of Sciences, the American Academy of Arts &amp; Sciences, and is a Fellow of the AAAS, the APS, and the BPS.
His research lies at the interface of physics and biology, particularly in the study of biomolecular motors, including kinesin and RNA polymerase, and the folding of nucleic acid-based structures.
His group pioneered the use of laser-based optical traps to study the nanoscale motions of biomolecules.
In what's left of his spare time, he enjoys skiing and playing bluegrass music on the banjo and mandolin.</p>

<h2>Graduate students</h2>

<h3>Bojan Milic</h3>

<img src="img/bojan.jpg" title="Bojan Milic" alt="A picture of Bojan Milic" />

<h5>B.S. in Biology and Chemistry, Stanford University, 2013</h5>

<p>I completed my undergraduate studies at Stanford, where I received a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry.
I first joined the Block Lab in early 2010 as an undergraduate, where I developed an interest in studying biological phenomena at the single-molecule level.
Working with Johan Andreasson, I spent most of my time in lab trying to understand how kinesin, a motor protein that transports cargo in cells, is able to travel micron-scale distances along intracellular highways called microtubules without dissociating.
After graduating, I was fortunate enough to get to stay at Stanford as part of the Biophysics Program.
I rejoined the Block Lab in late 2013, where I am currently continuing my work on kinesin.</p>

<h3>Daniel Hogan</h3>

<h5>B.S. in Physics, Caltech, 2013</h5>

<p>In 2013, I graduated from Caltech with a B.S. in Physics.
As an undergradute, I worked with Prof. Mitchio Okumura on precision spectroscopy of small molecules using cavity ringdown spectroscopy and photoacoustic spectroscopy.
My research supported NASA's Orbiting Carbon Observatory mission, which endeavours to create a global map of atmospheric carbon dioxide.</p>

<p>I entered Stanford's Applied Physics program and joined the Block lab in 2013.
I am building a next generation optical trap and working on transcription dynamics.</p>
