Advances in robotic microscopy have lead Dr. Steve Finkbeiner’s group to develop physical exams of the human neurons by longitudinal tracking of neuron signaling and differentiation with the application and development of different fluorescent tags and markers. Validation of a variety of biosensors and fluorescent signals for assays have been completed and is being applied for identification of functional responses on orphan GPCRs.
