Optical trapping has been widely used to uncover fundamental aspects of molecular and cellular biology, including the understanding of the movement mechanisms of molecular motors and the forces involved in cell adhesion. This group focuses on the development and application of novel optical trapping and manipulation techniques to biological problems. Focus areas include the use of evanescent fields and state of the art optical tweezers for molecular- and cellular-scale manipulation, integration of optical manipulation with microfluidics and lab-on-a-chip technologies, as well as optical sorting and optical methods for cell biology.
