Photobiology

We build and use the massive facilities of DESY to answer questions at the intersection of light and biology.

Our group is just getting started (since August 2020). Given the massive investment Germany, Europe, the US, Japan, and others are making in large-scale equipment for ultrafast studies, it's an exciting time to shape the future of photo/bio research... if you think so too, consider joining us!
