Biophysics of Neurons

Welcome to Cui lab at the Chemistry Department, Stanford University. Our research interest lies in understanding the signal propagation in neurons using quantitative tools developed by physical and chemical sciences. We focus on the long-range signal propagation in axons and its implication in neurodegenerative diseases. Methods of interest include single molecule fluorescence imaging, magnetic and optical trapping, photo-lithography, microfluidic neuronal platform, and electrophysiology recording.
