single-molecule imaging and spectroscopy
Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) is used to characterize single biomolecules, cell-celle interactions, and molecular interactions with surfaces.
We are currently studying the interaction between tumor cell surface protein ligand H-2K and its immune cell receptors Ly49.details
nanostructures - growth, characterization and applications
Quantum dots and nanowires are grown by self-assembly using electrodeposition, pulsed laser deposition (PLD), and layer-by-layer deposition.
This study will allow us to gain a better understanding and control of dots and wires formation.details
optical manipulation of proteins
Using optical tweezers, we can manipulate biomolecules while measuring forces and length.
We are in the process of building one optical tweezer to study different biological systems (ligand-receptor proteins and motor proteins).details
