The focus of my laboratory is in understanding signal transduction events using fluorescent microscopy in living cells. My lab is equipped with a state-of-the-art two-color TIRF microscope, which we will use to study UV-induced pigmentation in human skin and melanoma behavior. 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.
Elena Oancea, Ph.D., received her BS in Physics and her MS in Biophysics from University of Bucharest, Romania. She obtained a PhD in Cell Biology from Duke University Medical Center and her postdoctoral training from Harvard University Medical School and Children's Hospital, Boston. Dr. Oancea has always been fascinated by cell biology and signal transduction events, which she studies using different microscopy techniques combined with molecular biology and biochemistry.
