Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

I design and optimize new optogenetic tools and photoactivatable biosensors controlled by near-infrared (NIR) range of light. Due to the high penetration ability of NIR light in mammalian tissue these tools hold great potential for non-invasive control and visualization of cellular processes in live organisms with high spatial and temporal resolution.

Research interests

Optogenetics, biosensors, fluorescent proteins, cell biology, immunology, cancer therapy, antibody mimetics, neuroscience
