David Deamer, Ph.D.

Research Professor, Biomolecular EngineeringUniversity of California, Santa Cruz

Prof. Deamer's primary research interest concerns DNA transport through nanoscopic pores in membranes. This work focuses on developing an instrument that can analyze nucleic acids as individual molecules. Prof. Deamer also uses nanopore analysis in his second research interest, which concerns the process by which nucleic acids first emerged on the early Earth prior to the origin of cellular life. Results from these investigations are described in two recently published books: Origins of Life (2010) with Jack Szostak as co-editor, Cold spring Harbor Press and First Life (2011), University of California Press.
