The Power List 2019 – Top 20

Joel Harris

Distinguished Professor of Chemistry, University of Utah, USA.

Career highlight: Conducting quantitative chemical analysis at the limit of imaging and counting individual fluorescently-labelled molecules; we have used this method to observe the affiliation of signalling proteins with lipid membranes and the kinetics of DNA hybridization.

Exciting recent advance: In the past year, my colleague Eric Peterson has adapted single-molecule imaging to observe the hybridization reactions of unlabelled DNA – our venture into “dark matter” reaction kinetics.
