The Chow Laboratory creates dynamic input/output interfaces to cells by inventing new technologies to manipulate and monitor their physiology in intact biological circuits. We construct these tools by integrating a broad range of disciplines: optogenetics & photoreceptor engineering, synthetic biology, genomics, and device engineering. Recently, we have successfully applied next-generation sequencing technology to discover many widely employed optogenetic reagents for cell type-specific perturbation of neural circuits. Ultimately, our goal is to enhance therapeutic interventions through the collaborative application of these tools to the elucidation, diagnosis, and treatment of human disease.
