Welcome to the Oancea lab!

Our laboratory is primarily focused on understanding signal transduction events using fluorescent microscopy in living cells. Our lab is equipped with a state-of-the-art two-color TIRF microscope, which we use to study UV-induced pigmentation and melanoma in human skin. To visualize signal transduction events, we design and generate novel fluorescent probes using molecular biology techniques, which give us a unique angle in answering biologically relevant questions.
