We are currently evaluating if our ultrasensitive-microscopy techniques can be reapplied as antibody tests related to the COVID-19 outbreak. More information will be available soon.

Lucien is a Zuckerman Postdoctoral Fellow in Yoav Shechtman's Nano-bio-optics lab at the Technion - Israel Institute of Technology. His focus is on the development of new microscopy tools and analyses to characterize the interactions between biomolecules. This work relates to bettering our understanding of molecular cell biology, creating new types of diagnostic tests, and improving specificity of targeted therapeutics. 

During his graduate work in W. E. Moerner's Single-molecule biophysics lab at Stanford University, he studied the Sonic Hedgehog signaling pathway using single-molecule-related methods, particularly single-particle tracking, and also developed single-molecule tools for super-resolution microscopy and data analysis.
