Brief Description of Research
1. Biophysics
2. Bioimaging
3. Biomembranes
4. Cell biology
5. Developmental Biology


We are a multi-disciplinary research group bringing together people from Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Engineering and Computer Science. Our aim is to develop fluorescence, single molecule sensitive imaging and spectroscopy techniques and make them accessible to a wide range of users. Our research is centered on the investigation of biomolecular actions and functions under physiological relevant conditions to gain insights into important biological questions. At the moment we concentrate on three topics:

1) Construction and development of new optical tools
2) Fluorescence measurements in tissues and organisms
3) Biomolecular interactions
