HISTORY & GALLERY
Welcome to the Optical Nanomanipulation Lab at the Madrid Institute of Advanced Studies in Nanoscience and the Nanobiotechnology Associated Unit, CNB-CSIC-IMDEA Nanoscience (Spain).
Our research focuses on Molecular Biophysics and biocompatible nano-systems, with a strong bond to both Mesoscopic Physics and Biological Chemistry. We use theory and experiments based on the manipulation of single molecules.
The phenomena inside a cell happen molecule by molecule. Nucleic acids, as the software, and proteins, as the hardware, comprise a stochastic but coordinated and precise set of macromolecules that are accessible to optical trapping techniques.
