Smart Sensors Capture Life in Action
Ankona Datta, TIFR

All living things are made of molecules. However, molecules in living systems are not static. In fact, temporal changes in molecular distribution drive essential life processes. Can we visualize this intricate molecular dance in living systems? If yes then how? Come find out how we design ‘smart molecular sensors’ that can capture biological molecules live in action.

About the Speaker: Prof. Ankona Datta is a Chemical Biologist at TIFR working on the design of chemo-sensors for tracking bio-molecules in living systems.
