Robert E Campbell, Ph.D.
Uses protein engineering to invent novel tools for neurophotonics
Scientific Advisor | Optogenetics Protein Engineering Facility

Robert E Campbell uses protein engineering to invent new tools for imaging dynamic biochemical events in live cells and tissues.
He distributes these tools to cell biologists and neuroscientists who apply them to address questions ranging from fundamental mechanisms in cell biology, to the underlying causes of mental illness, to the development of novel therapeutics.
A full list of projects and representative publications are available on his website: Campbell Group - Projects
