Research areas

Development of bionanotechnological methods that allow quantifying inter- and intramolecular interactions of biological processes. These methods include imaging and manipulating cells at nanometer resolution, quantifying and localizing cellular interactions at molecular resolution and observing individual receptors communicating in living cells. Furthermore, the research covers quantifying and structurally localizing interactions that fold, stabilize and control the functional state of single membrane proteins in their native environment.
