Feingold Mario
Research interests:
    • We study the growth and division of single bacterial cells using time-lapse microscopy together image processing.
    • We use Optical Tweezers to monitor the protein-DNA interaction at the single molecule level.
Krichevsky Oleg + Lab homepage
Research interests: We study interactions and physical properties of biological molecules with the help of advanced optical (Single-Molecule Imaging, Fluorescence-Correlation Spectroscopy) and molecular biology techniques.

Yochelis Arik
Research interests: Pattern formation in biology and physiology (theory)
    • Auditory system: spatially localized amplifications in the cochlea.
    • Nonlinear waves of molecular motors in cellular protrusions.
    • Dynamics of intra-cellular actin polymerization and membrane waves.
    • Excitability and pacemakers.
