Wang Lab Research

Our lab studies optogentic technologies for protein detection and manipulation in living cells.

We will applying cutting-edge protein engineering methods, such as directed evolution, to improve the dynamic range and overall performance of light-sensitive proteins, and to harness them for detection and manipulation of important biochemical events. Our goal is to expand the optogenitics toolbox with widespread utility across multiple subfields of cell biology and neuroscience.

The lab will be joing the LSI June 1, 2018.
