The McDermott group is based out of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Alberta.

Our group focuses on surface modification and microfabrication for improved electroanalytical response, biomolecule microarray development, nanoscience, and molecular electronics. We employ imaging and spectroscopic techniques that are able to examine the physical and chemical properties of surfaces at lengths scales from centimeters to nanometers.
