Mitra Shojania Feizabadi, Ph.D.
Dr. Shojania Feizabadi focuses on the theoretical and experimental study of microtubule dynamics and cell division.
My research revolves around the following topics:
- Theoretical modeling of microtubule dynamics,
- Theoretical modeling of cell division,
- Biophysical characterization of cytoskeleton filaments, especially microtubules, through the implementation of laser tweezers and optical trapping techniques.
