The Conboy Group is actively developing novel analytical and bioanalytical techniques for the exploration of interfacial phenomena in biology and chemistry. We are currently pursuing research into the dynamics and structure of lipid membranes and the development of label-free methods for detecting protein and small-molecule adsorption to interfaces. Our laboratory uses a combination of nonlinear optical spectroscopies in conjunction with biological methods to achieve these objectives.

John Conboy’s research interests are in the development of novel bioanalytical techniques for the investigation of the dynamics and structure of lipid membranes and the development of label-free methods for detecting protein and small-molecule adsorption to interfaces. He received his B.S. degree at the University of California, Davis and his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon under the supervision of Geraldine Richmond. He performed postdoctoral research with Paul Barbara at the University of Minnesota, and Scott Saavedra at the University of Arizona where he was an NIH Postdoctoral Fellow. He is currently a professor and Henry Eyring Scholar at the University of Utah
