Running projects

- Development of a nanoscopy-correlation spectroscopy multiplex technique to follow intracellular dynamics
- Development of new photochromic fluorescent protein mutants for nanoscopy applications
- Study of oncomarker distribution and concentration int tumor tissues and in physiological condition with fluorescence microscopy
- Development of novel fluorescent probes to monitor cell membrane order and polarity

Research interests

Study of biological soft-matter and living cells, including:
