Student working on a research project.

Remote Control Of Ion-channels

We develop a method to manipulate ion-channels using iron-oxide nanoparticles and AC magnetic field. This will be used in neuroscience to study neuronal networks. to study enzyme dynamics at the single molecule level. The work would include nanoparticle surface chemistry, cell culture and performing cell measurements.
