Overview

We develop and apply novel nano-photonics and biophysical tools to explore the physics behind biological systems, from single molecules, membrane proteins to living cells.​

Our interdisciplinary group integrates members coming from chemistry, biology, biomedical engineering, and physics backgrounds.

细胞是生物系统的基本单元,细胞内外的各种蛋白如机械零件一样精密协同工作,使得细胞能够在复杂的生理环境中导航并实现其生物学功能。我们发展和利用新型光子学和生物物理学工具研究细胞运动过程中背后的物理规律(从单分子到活细胞),并探索这些物理规律和性能在生物学中的重要性。我们是一个横跨化学、生物医学工程和物理等多个领域的交叉团队,我们研究的最终目标是为疾病诊断、治疗和组织再生等医学研究提供新的认识和方法。
