Theme 2: Development of new optogenetic and photonic technologies

We are interested in developing novel cellular imaging and photo-control approaches, drawing from advances in the fields of photonics and nanotechnologies, for application in biomedicine. Particularly notable are the development of a monostructure microprobe for simultaneous optical and electrophysiological recordings in-vivo (LeChasseur Y et al., Nat Methods 8:319-325) and the design of an adaptive movement compensation for in vivo imaging within moving tissue (Laffray S, et al., PLoS ONE 6:e19928).
