Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering

  • Title Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering
  • Education Ph.D., Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, California Institute of Technology

Work in the Ngo Laboratory applies the principles of evolution, chemistry, and engineering to develop new tools for measuring, visualizing, and controlling biomolecules in living cells and organisms. The goal of our work is to develop novel technologies that enable discovery, and to apply those tools to reveal new insights into cellular function and disease. We are currently working in three complementary research topics:

  • Live-cell imaging of dynamic signal transduction in cells and neurons.
  • Development of new labeling techniques for high-resolution cellular imaging.
  • Protein engineering for applications in cell biology, biotechnology, nanotechnology.
