Research Description
The connecting theme of Dr. Pring's research is the analysis of complex biological phenomena by fitting mathematical representations of physical models of the underlying processes to experimental observations. The phenomena studied include biochemical reaction networks, molecular and bulk transport processes, biophysical transduction mechanisms, and various combinations of these. One such area of recent study is the mechanisms and thermodynamics of actin filament assembly and its control by proteins that in varying combinations bind actin monomers and cutcap and nucleate the filaments.
