Dr. Sugár has made important contributions to theoretical biophysics by 1) deriving exact solutions of the fundamental equations of fluorescence and NMR spectroscopy, 2) constructing stochastic models of cell electroporation and electrofusion, 3) simulating two-component phospholipid membranes by Monte Carlo techniques, 4) developing a statistical mechanical model of sterol/phospholipid mixtures, 5) modeling peripheral protein adsorption on the water/lipid interface, and 6) studying the effect of epithelial membrane geometry on autocrine/paracrine signaling. Recently he also contributed to the reliable analysis of high dimensional flow cytometry data by developing a fast clustering method and an improved method for compensation.
