single-molecule metallo-neurobiology

Welcome to the Chen Lab!

The Chen Lab investigates metal homeostasis in healthy and diseased neurons using single-molecule techniques, with the goals to understand how metals affect neuronal signaling and cause neurodegenerative diseases. Chen group members will gain valuable experience in state-of-the-art single-molecule microscopy/spectroscopy characterization, molecular biology, and data analyses.
