Principal Investigator: Thomas T. Perkins, Ph.D. Fellow of JILA & Adjunct Professor, Dept. of Molecular, Cellular & Developmental Biology, University of Colorado Dr. Tom Perkins of JILA has partnered with the biotech industry to develop powerful new tools to dramatically improve the measurement and understanding of the complex structure and function of single proteins and nucleic acids - in real time and under real-world biological conditions. Dr. Perkins has developed the world’s most sensitive atomic force microscope (AFM), and applied it to making the world’s most precise measurements of the structural details of individual protein and nucleic acid molecules. With this tool, he is now able to observe these large and complex molecules fold and unfold as they perform their crucial biological functions. Dr. Perkins has worked with AFM manufacturers to develop the world’s most sensitive AFM–with 100 times better resolution of position, force, and time than previous AFMs. The custom-made cantilevers for these machines are able to operate in the wet, warm environment of living cells. Dr. Perkins has teamed up with pharmaceutical/biotech companies to apply his unique AFM technology to make ultraprecise measurements of real-time folding and unfolding of individual protein and nucleic acid molecules for the first time. These experiments are creating rich new opportunities for medical diagnostics, treatments, and fundamental biomedical research; the AFM technology recognized by this award can directly advance biomedical research and lead to new biotech products. Dr. Perkins has transferred his technology through inventions and patents, through widely cited scientific publications, through direct collaborations with industry, and through training graduate students and postdoctoral fellows who have gone on to advance this revolutionary technology at AFM and biotech companies.
