About the Lab

Content

Our research interests center on the biology apoptosis and DNA damage. We specialize in multifunctional molecular probes which employ energy transfer, DNA-machines, nano-oscillators, bio-molecular chimeras, luminous fullerene and nanotube labels, isothermal amplification, exosomes.

Our currently funded projects deal with non-canonical cell death, efferocytosis, exosomes, and mRNA-based markers of cellular stress and injury. The main clinical models we use include stroke and glioblastoma.
