Adam Hendricks is an Assistant Professor of Bioengineering at McGill University. His lab seeks to understand how motor proteins transport intracellular cargoes, assemble the mitotic spindle, and tune cellular mechanics. Towards this goal, his lab develops biophysical tools to image and manipulate single motor proteins in living cells and reconstituted in vitro systems.

Viewpoint: Low Efficiency Spotted in a Molecular Motor

A detailed study of kinesin—a molecular motor responsible for transporting cellular cargo—shows that it loses 80% of input energy to heat. Read More »
