Welcome to the Kanchanawong Lab homepage. We are based at the Mechanobiology Institute (MBI), National University of Singapore (NUS). The scientific interest of our lab is at the interface of cell biology, biophysics, and advanced imaging technology. We are currently developing and applying superresolution microscopy techniques to study how proteins are assembled into nanoscale machinery within the cells, with focus on organelle systems important for mechanobiology such as the integrin-based adhesion complexes (Focal Adhesions) , the actin cortex, and the cadherin-mediated cell-cell junctions.
We have postdoctoral fellow and research assistant position available. Please click on this link, if you are interested in joining us.
