Our Researches

By combining chemical, biological, and physical tools, we are studying how membrane receptor react against environmental change, linked to cellular signaling and disease at single molecule level. To establish the platform technologies enabling simultaneous imaging, tracking and extracting bio-physical parameters, we are developing various chemical, optical, computational technology such as nanoparticle chemistry, super-resolution microscope, and machine learning algorithms.
