Welcome to the Cui Lab

Department of Chemistry | Wu Tsai Stanford Neuroscience Institute

The Cui lab develops new tools to advance our understandings of signal transduction in the complicated environment of living cells. We draw knowledge from chemistry, materials science, engineering, and molecular biology. Currently, we are focusing on four research directions: (1) Nano-bio interface: membrane curvature and intracellular signaling; (2) Bioelectronics: nanoscale electrodes for intracellular electrophysiology; (3) Optical Electrophysiology using electrochromic materials; and (4) Optical control of protein functions in neurons. Interested areas: membrane curvature, nano-bio interface, bioelectronics, neurobiology.
