Starting from October 2017, Alexander Mikhailov is a research professor in the Nano Life Science Institute of the Kanazawa university in Japan. His research group will focus on theoretical investigations of the dynamics of active biological matter at nanoscales, with a special emplasis on molecular machines. The web site of the new group is under construction.
