We are interested in the study of mechanical processes at the cell lipid membrane. For this purpose, we develop and use biophysical tools that enable real-time control and tracking of events occurring at the membrane.
We are also interested in the design and fabrication of biomimetic nanomaterials.
July 19, 2018 - We are awarded an AOARD grant to pattern bacterial biofilms, together with Anne Meyer's group, with whom we collaborate for the bioproduction of high-performance materials.
