Alexandra Paul

Visiting Researcher at Chemical Biology

Alexandra Paul is a PhD student in the Group of Molecular Microscopy working with non-linear microscopy to investigate cells in complex three-dimensional matrices. The main goal of her project is the development of a tissue-like in vitro drug testing model for obesity related diseases in cooperation with Astra Zeneca and Stanford University. The unique label-free and non-invasive non-linear microscopy techniques will be employed to study cell-matrix interactions in a soft and hydrated matrix and molecular dynamics on a single cell level.
