Teaching statement: Dr. Krasnoslobodtsev strives to create a challenging and positive classroom environment that stimulates learning and student engagement.
Dr. Krasnoslobodtsev’s research interests lie at the interface of nanotechnology, biology and physics. His research program uses principles of these disciplines to answer fundamental questions of biology that can facilitate early diagnostics and effective therapeutic solutions. Specific examples of the research projects are: single molecule studies of molecular mechanisms of protein misfolding phenomenon and protein-protein interactions; combination of nanoimaging and nanomanipulation with spectroscopic techniques and development of hybrid biosensing nano-platforms with high sensitivity.
