We are working on multidisplinary reserach projects. The lab is currently focusing on the following research topics: 1) Biomedical Imaging and Quantitative Image Analysis; 2) Mechanism of spatiotemporal regulation of vesicle trafficking in living cells and how that is perturbed in diseases (e.g. diabetes, cancer, etc.); 3) Combination of optogenetics and microscopy to control and imaging cellular molecular dynamics.
We have openings for new postdocs and graduate students. Inquiries about these should be emailed to Dr. Yingke Xu (email@example.com).
