PhD project: Photochemical restoration of visual responses

Photoswitches are small molecules, which upon absorption of a photon undergo reversible conformational changes. Coupling of a photoswitch to a ligand enables reversible control by light of not ordinarily light-sensitive receptors. My PhD project focuses on development of molecular photoswitches targeting retinal neurons. The work is carried out in Associate Professor Bente Frølund's laboratory.
