Lee Lab – Bioplasmonics Group
November 5, 2017

The Bioplasmonics Group, directed by Prof. Somin Lee, works at the interface between life science, physical science and engineering, drawing from a combination of bottom-up and top-down nanofabrication approaches, to design and develop smart biophotonic technologies and uncover biological complexities in the development of tissues and in cancer. Specifically, they have recently developed novel tools, including an mechano-optical plasmonic nanoantenna, to measure the temperature of proteins in cells. Prof. Lee received a Young Investigator Award from the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR) to support this research.
