About Eitan Lerner

I am a molecular biophysicist applying single-molecule fluorescence spectroscopy and advanced fluorescence microscopy techniques as well as tailoring new techniques and integrating with other experimental and theoretical techniques to study biomolecular interactions, structure, and dynamics in solution and the cell.

I have been implementing my knowledge and experience in performing experiments to answer questions regarding various biomolecular systems, such as Adenylate Kinase, the bacterial transcription initiation complex, p53, the amyloid-beta peptide, alpha-synuclein, and more.

Since I opened my lab in 2018, I have been interested in the molecular etiology of a group of diseases called Synucleinopathies (e.g., Parkinson's disease).

My interests include, but are not limited to (i) the structure-dynamics-function relationship in intrinsically disordered proteins (IDPs); (ii) phase-separated bio-condensates in health and disease; (iii) sensitive detection of bio-nanoparticles, such as viruses, exosomes, and IDP-based oligomers/aggregates.
