Projects per year
Over my career I had the privilege of being part of the enormous progress in imaging and protein science, much enabled by my chosen field of fluorescence; for example, the rise of the fluorescent protein, the unfolding of the 'genomic era' and the advent of quantum technology in biological sensing.
Sophisticated labelling of bio molecules, including my novel 'sandwich-technique' to prove plama membrane localisation by placing fluorophores both inside and outside the cell or my plant-addapted light-activatable green fluorescent protein have allowed great advances in our understanding of cellular function. But recent advances in imaging technology now allow moving even further using intrinsic fluorescence, working in unmodified biological conditions to focus on single molecules and single interaction towards the development of a gradual understanding from molecular science to man.
Working on the fringe between physics, medicine and biology I am contributing in world leading labs and working with a broad range of companies addressing the challenges of smart medicine for the 21st century.
I am developing magnetocardiogaphy towards smart sensing solutions for monitoring heart beat characteristics.
I am using time resolved fluorescent spectroscopy and imaging to investigate earliest steps in the formation of the human pigment melanin; a key factor in Malignant Melanoma and in the progression of Parkinson’s disease.
I am developing ultra-fast time-resolved spectroscopy for the sensing of physiological parameters in ocean borne organisms.
