Gavin Jeffries

Forskarassistent at Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Chemistry and Biotechnology, Physical Chemistry

My primary interest is in the elucidation of degradation pathways and recovery strategies for neuronal disorders. Utilizing my background of optics, microfluidics, nano-scale analytical chemistry and systems integration, my goal is to develop novel strategies and platforms for elucidation of responses from single cells and whole tissue systems.
