Bioelectronics is an exciting new field at the intersection of the life and physical sciences with the central theme of creating new medical therapies through the connection of biological structures with modern electronics.
Super-resolution microscopy is an emerging field that tries to overcome the resolution limit of conventional microscopy. This project will take a multi-disciplinary approach to this problem by combining the fields of image processing with microscopy imaging to develop a novel super-resolution restoration method.
In the Sahakyan Group, we strive to make computational biology maximally independent from empirical experimental data, by basing our models and predictions on genomic sequences and core biological mechanisms.
Computational models are invaluable for visualisation in molecular biology, as they employ our best quantitative physical understanding of biomolecules and their interactions to predict their dynamics, which is often missing from biophysical experiments.
The project aims at developing medical physics techniques for dosimetry of clinically used proton and hadron beams at the micrometre scale in order to improve cancer treatment with biologically optimized planning.
