Dr Dimitrov's current interests are in the area of electronic detection
which poses numerous interesting challenges at the boundary of biochemistry
and nanoscience. Recent advances in fabrication and characterization of nanoelectrodes
opens up the possibility for their use in detection of individual biomolecules,
while at the same time overcoming the limitations of optical detection posed
by the diffraction properties of light.
Krassen is in the process of building a diverse multidisciplinary group with
expertise in nanoelectronics, electrochemistry, molecular biology and microfluidics.
He completed a Ph.D. in Biochemistry at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston,
and a postdoctoral fellowship at the Institute of Systems Biology in Seattle.
Prior to joining AIBN Dr. Dimitrov was the Founder and Chief Scientific Officer
of NanoString Technologies, Inc.
