We pursue research and education in integrating engineering and computation strategies and technologies into biological studies to understand the mechanisms of basic cellular processes. We focus specifically on combining imaging with computation to quantitatively characterize and understand spatial-temporal cell dynamics.
Currently research is pursued within the follow areas:
- Experimental and computational analysis of axonal cargo transport as a model of intracellular trafficking
- Imaging-based mapping and analysis of spatial-temporal dynamics of cell signaling and the cytoskeleton
- Molecular cell mechanics of the cytoskeleton
- Advanced experimental and computational fluorescence imaging
- Janaury 2013: Ge will chair a special session at the 2013 IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging on computational representation of spatiotemporal cell dynamics.
