Research

Our research interests focus on the interface of physics, chemistry and biology. Through applying cutting edge techniques like advanced light microscopy, cell-free protein synthesis and microfluidics, we seek to systematic investigation of membrane proteins as well as bottom-up assembly of minimal cellular systems.
