Prof. Cox is interested in the biological physics of protein aggregation and the cytoskeletons of neurons, especially in the late stages of Alzheimer’s disease. He is co-director of the Institute for Complex Adaptive Matter. Previously he has worked on electron transport in DNA, strong electron correlations in biomimetic complexes, non-Fermi liquid behavior in heavy electron materials, and exotic superconductivity. With Michael Toney and Gang-yu Liu from the UC Davis Chemistry Department, he is the cofounder of Protein Architects Inc, a startup hoping to make useful products from our patent pending technology on beta solenoid protein architecture. Krishna Ravikumar is the chief scientist of Protein Architects.
