The Nano-Bio-Electronics Lab:
Our research is within the realm of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology on the border between Physics, Chemistry and Biology, with an emphasis on advanced materials.
Our research is bi-directional and includes intensive collaborations:
One direction is the development of molecular nanoelectronics based on DNA, proteins and polymers, whose properties we characterize.
The others direction is addressing by physical approaches, central biological and medical challenges for humanity, such as DNA sequencing, early, sensitive and rapid detection of cancer and other targets like the corona virus.
