Understanding molecular functions at the single-molecule scale

Welcome to the Blanchard Lab at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. Our mission is to develop novel approaches, including single-molecule fluorescence imaging methods, to examine conformational and compositional processes critical to the functions of biological systems.
