Laboratory of Nanoscale Biology (LBEN)

LBEN develops novel imaging methods, and computational tools to advance our understanding of biology and physical chemistry. Biological problems include clustering of membrane proteins, protein aggregation, microbiome composition. We are also interested in the phenomena occurring at the water-2d material interfaces. Nanoscale imaging (TEM optical nanoscopy) is a crucial component for the development and application of two types of nanoscale sensors : a) Nanopores used for single molecule characterization. b) Color centers in diamond or hexagonal boron nitride used for nanoscale mapping of physical quantities such as temperature, pH, electromagnetic field, ion concentration.
