Professional Interests

The Prevette research group is in the area of biophysical chemistry, studying the interactions between biomaterials and biomolecules. In particular, we are interested in interactions that occur at the cell surface, leading to cellular internalization of drugs and genes for gene therapy. We are also studying the effect of structure on the formation of DNA complexes. Students in the group learn about binding mechanisms, thermodynamics and kinetics, and the structure of biomolecules and their complexes through a variety of experimental techniques.


If you are interested in joining the research group, contact Prof. Prevette.

Lisa E. Prevette

Principles of chemistry and the properties of matter explained in terms of modern chemical theory with emphasis on topics of general interest to the engineer. Topics include atomic structure, chemical bonding, solids, liquids, gases, acids and bases, thermodynamics, kinetics, polymer chemistry and materials science. This is an accelerated course requiring excellent preparation in math and science and is a terminal course intended only for those engineering students who do not plan to take additional courses in chemistry. Offered Spring semester. Prerequisite: MATH 109 or higher, or equivalent of MATH 113, and ENGR 150 or Permission of Instructor. NOTE: Students who receive credit for CHEM 109 may not receive credit for CHEM 100, 101, 111 or 115. This course is not equivalent to CHEM 111, CHEM 112 or CHEM 115 and will not substitute for them.
